What is Church Membership?

               Church membership serves as a way for us, as Christians, to unite with a local body of believers in order to be discipled, to grow, to have accountability, and to participate in worship with others.  It is another way that we identify ourselves as Christians but also have a place for fellowship, service, worship, and ministry.  While it is not required in order to be saved, it is one of the ways that the New Testament helps us to publicly declare our faith in Jesus. You can read more about church membership in Romans 12:1-21; Acts 2:42-47; Hebrews 13:17; Ephesians 4:11-14; Hebrews 10:24-25; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31.
