What does the New Testament have to say about church membership? The metaphors that the Bible uses to describe the Church imply close relationships and structural order, and the Bible is clear that every believer should be committed to a local church. In this sermon Alistair Begg teaches us that our pattern of involvement in a local church should come directly from Scripture. To be meaningfully engaged in a church body requires each of us to be converted, baptized, added, and involved.
4For as in one body we have many members,5 and the members do not all have the same function, 5so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
