In today's culture, church membership and what it means to be a part of a church is generally misunderstood. Our American individualistic spirit has caused us to resist the biblical pattern recorded in Scripture.
First, membership is biblical. 1 Corinthians 12:27 says "Now you are the body of Christ and individual MEMBERS of it." As members together in the church we constitute the body of Christ. Biblical membership means you are active and functioning in the local church. The body needs you and you need the body. Ephesians 5:29-30
Second, being a member of a church isn't like being a member of other organizations. As Christians we need to be a part of a local church where we are sharing life in mutual accountability under biblical leadership. Being a part of the universal church without connecting fully to a local church is not healthy or biblical.
As a local body we want to help you not just be a spectator on the sidelines but we want to join with you in carrying out God's vision for you and CFC.
