If you are interested in joining the church, we are glad to help! At the conclusion of every Worship Service is a time of invitation, where you may come forward and join Northern Hills Baptist Church. Or you may schedule a time to visit with our pastor. In any case, we are always available and ready to answer your questions, helping to guide you through this process.
Do you ever wonder why people say it is important to join a church?
We are grateful for your interest in possibly becoming a member at Northern Hills Baptist Church. People occasionally ask, “Why should I actually join a church? Is there anything about joining a church in the Bible? Maybe I could just come and sit as a spectator.” There are answers to those questions! The Bible says that when we become a Christian, we are to be joined together in the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:13, 27). We should become a part of a local body of believers (church).
We believe it is God’s plan for every Christian to be more than a spectator in a church. God wants us to be a member and a vital part of a local body of believers so that we can receive the encouragement and nourishment that comes from being with other Christians. As a member of Northern Hills Baptist Church, we make a commitment to our church; to give, to be faithful in our attendance, and to use our spiritual gift to serve others. However, the road does not end there. The church is committed to you;
to watch over you, to nourish you, to encourage you, and to hold you accountable.
We hope that you will seriously consider becoming a part of Northern Hills Baptist Church. However, if you decide not to join here, remember God wishes for you to be part of a Bible-believing spiritual congregation.

OUR MISSION AND VALUES
At Northern Hills Baptist Church, we believe God has called us to transform our world by fulfilling the Great Commission. We want to equip our church family for the work of the gospel and send you out to make an eternal impact in our city, nation, and world. We are doing that in four specific ways: worship, equip, serve, and influence. We hope to help you connect deeply at Northern Hills and look forward to all God has for you as you strengthen your relationship with Him, fellowship with His people, and serve our community with us.
Every week, we gather to worship a mighty God through worship and a message by
Dr. Roger Copeland.
Though everything we do is based on God’s Word, we have several primary ways to equip you:
Sunday School at 9:30am, and Wednesday evening Bible Study classes each week.
1 Corinthians 12 tells us that we are one body and many parts. We want to help you discover your spiritual gift and an area to volunteer in the body. We have a variety of positions, and we look forward to serving one another and our community together.
We are committed to reaching our city, nation, and world for Jesus Christ, and a primary way we accomplish this is through missions. We support our partner ministries in Leon, Mexico, and Longmont, Colorado. We also have local opportunities with our Beyond Our Walls ministries.
