Church membership is so much more than just a piece of paper or a name on a list. It clearly defines a community and offers people a clear choice to accept the blessings and responsibilities that go along with it. But even more significantly, church membership is a way for individual Christians to draw closer to God by drawing closer to his church and his people. An effective membership process should be a time of spiritual growth for the member-to-be, and yet so many churches neglect this crucial step into church life.
This 18-page resource will help you create a membership process that draws people deeper into their commitment not just to the church but to Christ.
