Why Church Membership is Important

Isaac Kurien, creative writer, cees3.com

Why is church membership important for a healthy church community to grow? Worship and discipleship are meant to be communal experiences. A community of God’s followers should share them. And the church is just that: a community built on following God. God commanded church membership in the Bible because he wanted his children to worship their father together. “With many other words he testified to them and encouraged them, saying, ‘Be saved from this perverse generation.’ Those who accepted Peter’s message were baptized. God brought about three thousand people into the community on that day. The believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teachings, to the community, to their shared meals, and to their prayers” (CEB, Acts 2:40-42)

Communities are founded on commitment. Whether it has to do with blood relations, shared beliefs, or where you live, it is always that one thing that all those in the community commit their thoughts to, and that is what brings it all together. Facilitating membership in your church invites Christians to affirm to themselves and others that they will be a part of your community and commit themselves to the church and the people in it. As with any healthy community, this personal involvement from your church’s members makes your community strong, and that is what God wants for us and our churches.
