Church Membership? By Chad Moore
I love to ask my 2 year old son where he goes to church. In his cute little two year old voice, he says, Maarss Hill Bapis Chhurch…. (use a little imagination there!)
I love my church! I am so thankful that God has placed me at MHBC. Thank you God for letting me serve at a place that loves YOU, worships YOU, and strives to honor YOU! I get asked often, is it important to join a church? I not only believe it’s important, but I believe it is scriptural.
In 1 Corinthians 12:27-28, the Apostle Paul writes these words: “Now you are the body of Christ, and individual members of it. And God has placed these in the church.” Just as Salvation is a gift From God, so is church membership. What a joy and a gift to be able to unite with a local body of believers. May we never take for granted that God has called us and allowed us to be a part of His church and the local church. Treasure the gift of church membership, and make the most of it! It is my prayer that we at MHBC truly understand, that we are blessed to be a part of the church! May we never forget the gift God had given us, CHURCH MEMBERSHIP! May be take that gift and value it, cherish it and use it for God’s glory! I LOVE MY CHURCH!
