Why Membership Matters
Becoming a member of a local church is a dangerous, but important decision. We believe it is dangerous because it comes with significant responsibilities and isn’t something to be taken lightly. God’s design of the church was brilliant; small local gatherings of people that would disciple one another and provide accountability to one another as a community of believers. Accountability was a distinguishing characteristic of the early church – when someone who claimed to be a follower of Christ pursued a sinful lifestyle the church, as an act of love, rallied around that person and encouraged them to change their ways and pursue God again. Accountability can’t happen if the church doesn’t know who is committed to being a part of the local community of believers, and accountability won’t be effective if individuals don’t invite the church into that role as a spiritual authority in their life.
