Is Church Membership Biblical?

HEB 13:17 Be obedient to those leading you, and be subject, for these do watch for your souls, as about to give account, that with joy they may do this, and not sighing, for this `is' unprofitable to you, they are counted worthy, especially those labouring in word and teaching,

You should know that members of the church are called:

You as a member

Eric Michel Ministries International, IAoC, is run using the episcopal and congregationalist polity and we are NOT associated with other congregations in a denomination or convention that is why we call ourselves independent

Eric Michel Ministries International: Baptist, Catholic, Evangelic, Methodist and Pentecostal are used to mean the whole traditions to which we belong.

Eric Michel Ministries International is a fellowship of persons who have voluntarily followed Jesus as Lord and voluntarily associated with one another under his lordship and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Becoming a member is an individual response of faith, growing as a Christian is enhanced by fellowship with other Christians. Baptized life was designed not as a solo endeavour but as a fellowship experience, with a church being the primary fellowship. The New Testament concept of the church focuses on a local body of baptized believers in Christ.  

As Baptized, we believe that church membership should include only the redeemed in Christ, but we encourage and welcome all persons to attend various activities, worship services, Bible studies and ministry events that are open to all persons. We would like to encourage you to join our church family at Eric Michel Ministries International

Church membership is a public affirmation of someone’s public profession of faith in Christ, and Jesus has appointed baptism as the means by which his followers publicly profess their faith. We can’t affirm the profession of someone who hasn’t yet made that profession. Baptism is how you publicly identify yourself with Christ and with his people (Acts 2:38–41). It’s how you visibly signify that you are united to Christ in his death, burial, and resurrection (Rom. 6:1–4). It’s how you are identified before the church and the world as one who belongs to the Triune God (Matt. 28:19).

God's elect people from every nation and tribe, scattered throughout the earth, all those who have been

given the gift of faith, by God, to believe. Our local gathering, which is organized in a way so as to function

within the parameters given in the scriptures, often described as "the local church"

Membership is one way to raise the flag of faith and to state before God and others that you are committed

to being a part of this local body of believers.

Membership is not simply an opportunity to say: "I’m a part of this organisation", but rather a scriptural

expression of covenant connectedness to a church.

Membership is a reflection of the organic community already existing in the body of Christ. Paul says

we are a body ~ Romans 12:5. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body.

When an individual is baptized, he becomes a member of the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:13).

Because he is united to Christ and the other members of the body in this way, he is therefore qualified to

become member of a local expression of that body. One who, by his own volition, has declared allegiance,

commitment, or submission to; or affiliation with a our assembly specifically and exclusively, and who has

been accepted by our group based upon certain criteria. Church membership is important because it helps

define the clergy’s responsibility
