Why Is Church Membership Important?
Church membership is a way of officially identifying yourself with a local body of believers. It is a declaration that you are in agreement with Mountain Life’s Vision, Values and Statement of Faith and are accepting the responsibilities of representing Christ in this way.
Church membership is a covenant relationship with other members to mutually support and encourage one another and use your time, talents & resources to serve one another in love.
Church membership places you under the spiritual protection and authority of godly leaders and provides you with the mutual accountability you need to grow in Christlikeness.
Church membership ccon many important church decisions, including voting on the leadership team candidates, annual budget, the hiring of a senior pastor, building expansion and more.
As a member, you make a deep commitment to weave yourself into the very fabric of the church tapestry, so that your participation has a determining effect on how Mountain Life Church lives out its vision.
