what's happening and where to connect

Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many.  

- 1 Corinthians 12:12-14

How to Join Burnt Hickory

When we speak of “placing membership,” that simply means that as a baptized disciple of Christ, you are choosing to make Burnt Hickory your church home and be involved in its work. Ideally, that means that you will attend worship, be part of one of our small groups, discipleship groups, and be involved in one of our ministries.

The first step is to attend Starting Point. This quarterly information session is hosted by our lead minister, and is where you can get your questions answered. There is no obligation if you come, but we will explain our mission and vision and the process for placing membership. To find out the date of the next Starting Point, call the church office at 678-354-2814.

To place membership, please click the link to complete and submit a BH Personal Profile form.

If you have not yet been baptized, please contact one of our ministers so that we can help you discover what the Bible says about this step in your spiritual journey.
