Membership

At EMB we practice what is called “church membership.” The Bible teaches that membership in a local church is the normal expectation for a healthy Christian, and is much more than simply attending a worship service — being a member of a church is a commitment to watch over and care for other members and be watched over and cared for by other members. This is expressed in our Church Covenants, which is a summary of the how the Bible instructs believers to care for one another.

 

Christians are called to assemble together regularly to build one another up in Christ (Hebrews 10:23-25), to encourage one another regularly (Hebrews 3:12-14), to work together to get the Gospel to lost people around the world (Matthew 28:18-20), to protect each other from sin (James 5:19-20), to guard the church from hypocrisy (Matthew 18:15-18), and to be built up by the regular teaching of God’s Word through gifted teachers (Hebrews 13:17).
