Steps for Church Membership

Why join a church? The necessity of church membership is a regularly asked question. We feel it is an important part of a person’s own spiritual growth as well as the health of the church. There are privileges in membership, along with an extra sense of belonging to a family. We understand that the Bible implies a formal recognition of church affiliation, and what it is heightened as the “Church” now meets in various congregations all over larger cities.
