At Glory of Christ, we believe wholeheartedly in the concept of church membership. However, we don’t think about it like membership in a health club or a civic club, but rather like being a “member” of a physical body.
Consider 1 Corinthians 12:12-14: “For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit. For the body does not consist of one member but of many.”
Therefore, we believe that membership in a local church makes visible the fact that a person is a member of Christ and of his body.
