Why be a church member? Why not just be able to go and participate?
Membership is about being “a member in the Body of Christ.” And, therefore, membership is “organic not organizational.”
Members of The Rock:
Submit to the authority of the Scriptures as the final arbiter on all issues (Ps. 119; 2 Tim. 3:14-17; 2 Pet. 1:19-21).
Pursue the Lord Jesus Christ through regular Bible reading, prayer, fellowship and practice of spiritual disciplines
(Luke 18:1; Acts 17:11; 1 Cor. 9:24- 27; Eph. 5:1-21; 1 Thess. 5:12-22).
Follow the command and example of Jesus by participating in the ordinances prescribed to His Church.
