WHY CHOOSE MEMBERSHIP?
The difference between being an attender and being a member can be summed up in one word — commitment. Membership is important for these four reasons:
Christ is committed to the church and it shows obedience to what He is committed to. The Bible says, “Christ loved the church and gave His life for it.”
We live in an age where very few people want to be committed to anything … a job, a marriage, a church, a country. This attitude has produced a generation of church shoppers and church hoppers. Membership swims against the current of America’s consumer religion. It is an unselfish decision. Commitment always builds character.
It defines who can be counted on, and who’s counting on us. Every team has a roster. Every school has an enrollment. Every business has a payroll. Every army has an enlistment. Even our country takes a census and requires voter registration. Membership identifies who’s in our family.
Membership 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 can’t be consistently accountable when you’re not committed to a specific church family.
