Community Bible Church has over 600 people who would count themselves as a part of our church family (children through adults). Of these, 239 are counted as members of the church. Clearly, not everyone thinks about church membership the same. Maybe that’s because the Bible doesn’t directly speak to the issue. But are there good reasons why you should consider membership in a local church? Should you become a member of Community Bible Church?

The Apostle Paul likens the church to the human body in 1 Corinthians 12.12 which reads, “The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So, it is with Christ.”
Yes, the Bible clearly teaches that relationships among believers are important, but is membership necessary?

Certainly, membership (the formal joining of one’s self to a local group of believers) flies in the face of much current practice and belief. Many churches do all they can to minimize the importance of church membership, seeing it as some out of date, needless practice.

However, Community Bible Church sees church membership as very important. One of the most fundamental reasons why we believe membership is significant is because every believer is already a member of the Church. When an individual joins a local church he is merely demonstrating what is already true spiritually.

As a believer, you are a member of the Church. Do your attitudes and actions regarding the local church, Community Bible, reflect the seriousness of this spiritual truth?
Why should you join CBC? Because your local church membership reflects the spiritual truth of your membership in the body of Christ.

If you'd like more information about how to become a member, you can pick up a membership information packet at the Information Center in our lobby.
