9 Reasons to Join a Local Church

Why become a member of the church?

Church membership:
1. is supported by Biblical evidence. Acts 2:41, Eph 5:25, Hebrews 10:25

2. is a person’s public commitment to a particular group of believers

3. allows church leaders to fulfill their task of shepherding those who have joined the church.

4. defines and builds the team that is ready to do the work of the church.

5. offers a support system when believers are tempted or struggling.

6. provides opportunities for spiritual growth under the guidance and accountability of other church members.

7. challenges believers to use their God given spiritual gifts alongside others God has placed in the church.

8. grants believers permission to offer input and direction for a local church body.

9. provides a family in a rapidly changing society.
