Why membership matters.
Does it really matter if I’m a member or not? Why do I have to take a class to even become a member? Why do I have to sign anything? People often ask these questions about our membership process, skeptical as to why there seem to be so many “hoops” to jump through.
It’s true. We take membership seriously and with a lot of gravity. Committing yourself to a body of believers is weighty, but also wonderful. When Members join, they commit to a community that provides encouragement and support. They are called to responsibility, service and sacrifice to their brothers and sisters. Our elders and leaders also pledge to assist our Members with care, counsel, prayer and teaching.
