Sunday, June 6th marked a monumental day at Free Life Community Church as 28 people were welcomed into membership! FLCC Senior Pastor Dan Willis has this to say:
I’m excited about our new members because they recognize how important church membership is. The Apostle Paul says we’re part of the body of believers. Jesus made it clear that “individual Christianity” is a myth and unacceptable. And people need church membership because it helps them connect to the greater Christian Community, and gives them a sense of worth and belonging. God makes us a part of his larger family when we are born again. Then He requires us to be part of a local body and live in community with them, learning and living by godly principles as we deepen our spiritual awareness and relationship with God. Membership doesn’t save us. But it enables us to grow and become spiritually mature in Christ. Not only should we be members of the body, each of us should also be able to express the value of membership. Hopefully, then people will stop squirming when we bring up the topic, but instead passionately embrace the biblical nature of church membership, and the reasons and benefits for it.
