There are many misconceptions about church membership. Is it biblical? Is it necessary? What is its purpose? This class provides biblical answers to these questions. The purpose of this class is to teach:
1. Church membership is biblical
2. Every Christian should be a member of a church
3. Church membership makes a profound difference in the Christian life
As a preview, this “profound difference” is not about receiving special benefits like members of a club. Rather, it is about receiving the blessing of being part of a body of believers who serve and edify one another in love, empowered by the Holy Spirit, under the leadership of God-ordained pastors and elders, leading to maturity in Christ and the display of His glory to the nations.
