One of the most frequently asked questions relating to the topic of church membership is, “Why should I become a Member? Can’t I just go to church and participate in all the activities without having to make a commitment?”

The last word in that quote is the first reason to join the church — COMMITMENT.

We ask you to commit to membership for 4 reasons:

1. A Biblical Reason: Christ is committed to the church.
“ …Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her.” Ephesians 5:25

2. A Cultural Reason: It is an antidote to a lack of commitment in our society.
We live in an age where very few want to be committed to anything…job…marriage… church. This attitude has produced a “consumer religion.” Becoming a member, on the other hand, is an unselfish decision. Commitment like this builds character.

3. A Practical Reason: It defines who can be counted on. Every team must have a roster. Every army has an enlistment. Membership says you can count on me.

4. A Personal Reason: It produces spiritual growth. The New Testament places a major emphasis on 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. Membership is a door of opportunity. A door that leads to greater growth, identity and fulfillment.

We invite you find out more about us, why we do what we do, our beliefs, our vision and what is expected of members by attending one of our services or Bible Studies or by contacting us for additional information.
