New Member Orientation
At Star, we are not satisfied with just having members; we believe that "discipleship" is what the Lord requires! It is our goal, therefore, to see that each New Disciple/member has a firm foundation on which to build, and is established in the Word of God so he/she can grow and experience a life of victory in Christ Jesus. New members must complete New Orientation classes as the first step in the process to becoming full fledge members of the Star of Bethlehem Baptist Church.
These sessions take place on Sundays at 9:45am in the Conference Room. The purpose of the orientation session is to provide new members with the opportunity to learn about Star of Bethlehem’s history, programs and ministries as well as spend time discussing the Baptist view of our Christian faith.
