What is Church Membership?

When we accept Christ into our lives we are united with Christ. Out of this union to Christ we join together with other believers to live in community. We have a new identity and become a part of a new family centered around Jesus.  

Church membership is the physical expression of a spiritual reality of a new life in Christ. Without Church membership Christianity looks like a place driven by consumers rather than a community that is identified by and driven by the gospel.   

 

Why Church Membership?

Membership in a church is not like membership in other organizations. Attending church is not like attending a meeting or club. It’s definitely not like a Costco membership. 
In those cases, members are consumers and audience members and the organization exists to serve them. 
The church is completely different. 
Membership means…ministry and service. 
 Going from being a consumer to becoming a provider of God’s love and care to others in our Church and those around us. The church isn’t for ourselves, it’s for others.
