About Us

What is your statement of faith?
 
We hold to the Baptist Faith & Message 2000. The text can be found at http://www.sbc.net/bfm2000/bfm2000.asp
 
How do I become a member?
 
To become a member of Happy Home Baptist Church, you will first need to meet with Pastor Richard. Then you will be enrolled in a new member's class which will give you the opportunity to learn more about the church, as well as learn what being a member entails. Finally, you will be presented to the church, and they will vote you into the membership of the church, at which time you will become a member of the church. This takes place either through baptism, statement of faith, or by letter from the church you are currently a member.
 
Are you affiliated with a denomination?
 
Yes. We are a Southern Baptist church.
 
Are there ways to get involved in helping others?
 
Yes. Our Brotherhood and WMU have projects going on throughout the year. We also have our C.A.R.E. Ministry that meets every first Wednesday of the month at 6:30.
 
What are Sunday School and Sunday Training?
 
Sunday School and Sunday Training are opportunities to hear the Bible taught and then discussed on a deeper level within a small group context.
 
Do you have childcare and classes for my children?
 
Yes. We have a nursery, classes for children, and classes for teenagers available at every meeting time.
 
What is your music program like?
 
Our music program consists of a variety of music. Our congregational singing is mostly traditional. Our choir sings a good mix of traditional and contemporary songs. Our Praise Team sings often and incorporates more modern worship songs. We also have some who provide special music, which includes a wide range of styles. Above all, our music program seeks to bring honor and glory to God and tune our hearts to sing His praise.
 
What do I have to wear?
 
Whether you are comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt or a suit and tie, you will fit right in at Happy Home.
 
What version of the Bible do you preach from?
 
Pastor Richard preaches and teaches from the English Standard Version (ESV). While there is no set version for teaching here at Happy Home, this is the version Pastor Richard uses. For a good synopsis of the ESV please go to: www.ligonier.org/reformation-study-bible/about/why-esv/
 
Are there opportunities for outreach into the community?
 
Yes. We currently have an outreach team that goes out into the community to share the love of Christ.
