9Marks: Building Healthy Churches.

To be a member of a church is to make a promise to live according to the Word and to support the work of the congregation.   In the Bible this is called a covenant.  Every believer is part of the church when we think about it as an organism (the Spiritual Body of Christ), but only by a promise can someone be part of the church as an organization.  A promise, or covenant, is the basis for all society according to the Bible: marriage, employment, citizenship and church membership are all relationships of accountability. 

Membership in a church is not like membership in a social club or other organization. Most organization members are consumers — the organization exists to serve them. The church of Christ is a completely different community — membership means ministry and service, going from being a consumer to becoming a provider of God’s love and care to others.  At The Bridge Fellowship, we take seriously that we are a church not for ourselves, but for others in our city.
