Many people view the church as a social club. They pay their monthly fee and as a result, the church provides something for them. This is not the concept that we see in the New Testament. Being a church member is not a statement of status, it is a statement of function.
The church is not a club and it is not a service provider. Rather it is an embassy filled with ambassadors for the kingdom of heaven and each ambassador has a specific function within the church.
Church membership is not a statement of status, it is a statement of function.
If you are interested in membership, these sermon will give you a better understanding of what we believe about the gathered church.
