What is Church Membership?
When an individual is saved, he or she becomes a member of the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:13). Because he or she is united to Christ and the other members of the body in this way, he or she is therefore qualified to become a member of a local expression of that body. To become a member of a church is to formally commit oneself to an identifiable, local body of believers who have joined together for specific, divinely ordained purposes. These purposes include receiving instruction from God’s Word (1 Tim. 4:13; 2 Tim. 4:2), serving and edifying one another through the proper use of spiritual gifts (Rom. 12:3-8; 1 Cor. 12:4-31; 1 Pet. 4:10-11), participating in the ordinances (Luke 22:19; Acts 2:38-42), and proclaiming the gospel to those who are lost (Matt. 28:18-20). In addition, when one becomes a member of a church, he or she submits to the care and the authority of the qualified pastors that God has placed in that assembly.
Why is Membership Important?
It is important to have a church home -- a place to worship God, a place to grow in your faith and to turn to in times of trouble. We invite you to join us in our journey of faith. Beyond that church membership also makes a statement: “I belong here. I am committed to the church, and the church is committed to me!” The church is not an “it.” It’s an “us.” And all of us together, under the head (Jesus Christ), make up the church.
Becoming a member here isn’t difficult at all. We just ask you to do four things:
