New Hope Community Church


Church Membership

Why is Membership Important?


1. It’s Biblical
The idea of church roles is not foreign to the New Testament. The Lord Himself keeps record of names. (Philippians 4:3, Revelations 13:8)

2. It’s necessary
A church membership guarantees that those entrusted with influence, either through the vote or through leadership positions, will maintain the biblical standards upon which the church was founded.

3. It’s Practical
Church membership identifies those people who can be counted on for loyalty and support in practical ways such as faithful giving and volunteer services.
