The concept of church membership runs throughout the Bible. God talks about his Church being a family, a building, a nation, a kingdom and a body. One of the most important Greek words in the New Testament is koinonia, which means fellowship, community or oneness. That’s what we are trying to achieve through church membership in a city like London and through church partnership at all of our online congregations across the world.
Having a church membership is helpful because it means we don’t expect attenders of Everyday Church to behave like Christians until they actually are! When people decide to follow Jesus, they get baptised as a mark of being part of God’s global family and they become members as a mark of commitment to working out their Christian discipleship in a particular community of believers.
We run membership courses several times a year. Fill in an online Connect Card to sign up for the next one in your Everyday Church venue.
