CHURCH MEMBERSHIP

Why Membership?

We encourage membership to help develop a team of family workers who have a common vision with like-minded basic beliefs. While all followers of Christ are members of the universal body of Christ, they should also be committed to a local congregation. The Bible teaches clearly that if two are going to walk together, there must be an underlying agreement (Amos 3:3). If people are going to come into a covenant relationship that is genuine and meaningful there must be a strong foundation for that relationship to be built upon. Membership is a public declaration of that covenant relationship based on shared vision, beliefs, practices and trust.

Does everyone have to become a member to attend?

Everyone is invited and welcome to attend WORD Fellowship!  Membership is not a requirement.   However, there are certain areas of ministry and responsibilites that do require membership.
