Membership requires both Discipleship and love
But in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
I Corinthians 12:4-6
Members
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 two years will result in your lost of membership

Appointed baptism as the means by which his followers publicly profess their faith. We can’t affirm the
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
  1. If you have never been baptized, you will prepare for baptism.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

HEB 13:17 Be obedient to those leading you, and be subject, for these do watch for your souls, as about
to give account, that with joy they may do this, and not sighing, for this `is' unprofitable to you,them be
counted worthy, especially those labouring in word and teaching,

corporation status.

You as a member
We are a Christ-centred community together we serve God  and we invite you to get to know us better!
Membership is open to anyone who has received Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour and desires to be a
fully devoted follower of Him.

The only requirements for church membership are that you have personally trusted Christ for salvation
and been baptized.  If you have never been baptized by immersion, we have a series of Baptismal Classes
to explain it.

Eric Michel Ministries International run using the episcopal and congregationalist polity and we             
are NOT associated with other congregations in a denomination or convention that is why we call      
ourselves independent

Eric Michel Ministries International: Baptist, Catholic (Ind.), Evangelic, Methodist and Pentecostal are used
to mean the whole traditions to which we belong.

Eric Michel Ministries International is a fellowship of persons who have voluntarily followed Jesus
as Lord and voluntarily associated with one another under his lordship and the guidance of the
Holy Spirit.

Becoming a member is an individual response of faith, growing as a Christian is enhanced by fellowship
with other Christians. Baptized life was designed not as a solo endeavor but as a fellowship experience,
with a church being the primary fellowship. The New Testament concept of church focuses on a local body
of baptized believers in Christ.  

As Baptized, we believe that church membership should include only the redeemed in Christ, but we
encourage and welcome all persons to attend various activities, worship services, Bible studies and
ministry events are open to all persons. We would like to encourage you to join our church family at Eric
Michel Ministries International
