Next Steps

At Wayne Hills Baptist Church, we believe church membership is both Biblical and practical. We encourage all regular attenders to prayerfully consider joining WHBC and partner with us as we seek to love one another and advance God's Kingdom.

There is a multi-step process to join WHBC. 

Next Steps Class

All prospective members must attend a "Next Steps" Class. The class typically consists of two, forty-five minute sessions highlighting  a variety of topics related to membership at WHBC. 

Next Steps classes are scheduled as needed. 

Pastoral Interview

Prospective members meet with either Pastor Jamie or Pastor Will, to provide their basic testimony of faith and details concerning their baptism by immersion. 

Typically, the pastoral interview takes place separately from the Next Steps Class. 

Elder Review

The elders will review prospective members written testimony. Upon receiving their collective recommendation, the process continues to the final step: church affirmation. 


The prospective member does not need to meet with an elder.

Church Affirmation

Prospective members will be presented to the church during our Full Family Fourth Sunday (F3S) of every month. Each candidate will have a brief testimony printed in the bulletin for the church to read.
