Why Church Membership?
Have you ever considered becoming a member of Sidney Assembly of God? If you are born-again and you call this congregation your church, then you should consider church membership.
Romans 12:4-5 (NIV) Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
Church Membership says, “I am COMMITTED– committed to CHRIST and committed to HIS CHURCH”!
What is Church Membership?
Church Membership is a commitment to serve God’s purpose in and through a local body of believers. Can a person be committed without membership? Absolutely! In fact it’s very easy to point out in almost any given Church some members who demonstrate a lower level of commitment than some who are not members but attend regularly. The same can be said about couples who are married vs. those who simply live together. There are always a few “exceptions”.
The challenge is to do what’s right– to make a commitment and stick with it! Don’t let the actions of others affect your decision to do what’s right!
Is there the possibility that you might regret making that commitment? Yes! There may be times when it’s tough to be a member, but keeping your commitments is a mark of maturity.
We have Four reasons why membership is important.
- A BIBLICAL reason. Christ is committed to the church and we should be also (Eph. 5:24)
- A CULTURAL reason. It’s a Testimony to the world that commitments matter.
- A PRACTICAL reason. It helps church leaders know who can be counted on.
- 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 can not be accountable when you are not committed to any specific church family.
