According to the Bible, church membership is a commitment every Christian should make to attend, love, serve and submit to a local church. Throughout Old Testament history, God made a clear distinction between his people and the world. The New Testament explicitly refers to some people being inside the church and some people being outside. Biblical church membership is important because the church presents God’s witness to himself in the world and displays his glory.
