In his kindness, God hasn’t called us to follow Jesus on our own but has rescued us into a community. But this is no casual Christian club of loose connection. A local church is made up of brothers and sisters in Jesus who receive and share God’s blessing of fellowship. The result is that when you have Jesus in common, barriers are overcome by the bonds of unity and love. This is sometimes called 'church membership' and if you have questions about the place and purpose of it, we’d love to hear from you.
