But in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. I Corinthians 12:4-6
- A members is considered ‘ACTIVE’ if attending annual meetings, participating in church
discussion groups and activities, taking classes, or making contributions.
- misconduct, or inactivity for a period of one year or more = deleted
profession of someone who hasn’t yet made that profession. Baptism is how you publicly identify yourself with
Christ and with his people (Acts 2:38–41).
It’s how you visibly signify that you are united to Christ in his death, burial, and resurrection (Rom. 6:1–4).
It’s how you are identified before the church and the world as one who belongs to the Triune God (Matt. 28:19).
God's elect people from every nation and tribe, scattered throughout the earth, all those who have been given
the gift of faith, by God, to believe. Our local gathering, which is organized in a way so as to function within the
parameters given in the scriptures, often described as "the local church"
- Membership is one way to raise the flag of faith and to state before God and others that you are
committed to being a part of this local body of believers.
- Membership is not simply an opportunity to say: "I’m a part of this organisation", but rather a scriptural
expression of covenant connectedness to a church.
- Membership is a reflection of the organic community already existing in the body of Christ. Paul says
we are a body ~ Romans 12:5. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body.
When an individual is baptized, he becomes a member of the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:13).
Because he is united to Christ and the other members of the body in this way, he is therefore qualified to
become member of a local expression of that body. One who, by his own volition, has declared
allegiance, commitment, or submission to; or affiliation with a our assembly specifically and exclusively,
and who has been accepted by our group based upon certain criteria. Church membership is important
because it helps define the clergy’s responsibility
How do I become a member
- If you have never been baptized, you will prepare for baptism.
- If you were baptized as an infant or young child and have not made a profession of faith and been
confirmed, then you will prepare to reaffirm your baptism when you take the membership vows.
- If you are a member of another the church where you get baptized as an adult, then you can be a
member to the Independent United Methodist Fellowship because you did your profession of faith
and was received as a member.
