We Believe Church Membership should mean something!
In a culture where commitment is no longer highly valued, we believe it is important to clearly define church membership. We encourage our members who have openly professed a commitment to Christ to serve Him through their active participation in the local church. We are convinced that an active church membership can be a significant step in our life-long discipleship journey and helps you define your Christian commitment.
4 Reasons for Church Membership:
1. A Biblical Reason. Christ is committed to the church. “…Christ loved the church, and He gave His life for it.” (Ephesians 5:25)
2. A Cultural Reason. It is an antidote to our society. Membership swims against the current of America’s “consumer religion.” It is an unselfish decision. Commitment always builds character.
3. A Practical Reason. It defines who can be counted on. Every organization has some criteria by which its members are identified. Membership identifies our family.
4. A Personal Reason. It produces spiritual growth. The New Testament emphasizes the need for Christians to be accountable to each other for spiritual growth. You cannot be accountable when you’re not committed to any specific church family
