Church Membership – A Covenant Community
We believe in the biblical concept of church membership. In this sacred covenant community, believers come together to grow, serve, and worship in accordance with God’s Word. Becoming a member of our church family is not merely a commitment; it’s a step toward aligning your life with the biblical model of the Body of Christ.
Biblical Significance of Church Membership
Spiritual Growth: Church membership is a means of spiritual growth. Through regular worship, study of God’s Word, and fellowship with fellow believers, you will deepen your relationship with God and His teachings (Acts 2:42).
Accountability: In a biblical community, we are accountable to one another. Galatians 6:2 reminds us to “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.” Church membership provides a network of support for your spiritual journey.
Service and Ministry: As a member, you have the privilege to serve the body of Christ using your unique gifts. Ephesians 4:12 encourages us to equip the saints for the work of ministry, building up the body of Christ.
Belonging: Church membership signifies belonging to the family of God. Romans 12:5 teaches us that “so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.” Membership fosters lasting relationships and a sense of unity in Christ.

The Role of Baptism
Baptism is a significant step in your journey toward church membership. It symbolises your identification with Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection and your commitment to follow Him (Romans 6:3-4). If you have not been baptised, we encourage you to take this vital step before becoming a Saving Grace Bible Church member.
