Why Membership? Membership may seem like an outdated idea, but we believe that belonging to a local church is something that every Christian is called to. We don’t see a specific verse in the New Testament that tells Christians that they must be a “member of a local church”. We do, however, see truths in Scripture that encourage believers to commit, serve, and love one another. We believe Membership is a practical way to live out the Gospel and say “I’m in”!
“For the body does not consist of one member but of many. If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would be the sense of hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell? But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. If all were a single member, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, yet one body.” 1 Corinthians 12:14–20
