Membership in a local church is an important and exciting part of being a Christian. Although church membership is often misunderstood, the Bible does speak to it.
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 the 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.
