NOTE: Our next 2021 membership class is running Sunday November 7, 14, and 21 (9:30-10:20AM). Please communicate your interest to Rev. Thomassian.
Membership in the body of Christ is an important part of Christian living. Membership signifies:
- Objective support of our personal claim to be Christian. Mere attendance at a church does not communicate that others believe you are a Christian. Membership is a legitimate affirmation of your testimony (Rom. 16:1-2).
- Submission to biblically ordained spiritual authorities. Without membership, Christians fail to communicate their recognition of those in authority (Heb. 13:17).
- A shared trust. By joining the church, not only do you convey your trust of the church oversight, but they in turn can have greater trust in you and consider you for positions of ministry leadership and responsibility. It points to a covenantal commitment to one another.
- A willingness to participate in the election of office bearers. Just as civic elections must be limited to those recognized as citizens, so it is with church elections. Without a membership role, it would be difficult to conduct decent and orderly elections.
