People seek out a church for many reasons, such as finding answers to difficult questions, deepening faith, being part of a supportive fellowship, and providing religious education to children.
Members have made an intentional commitment to bond covenantly to each other and the church in a faith community. Membership starts a relationship with a pastor and provides connections to programs for a family. Membership also opens up opportunities to serve at certain levels of lay leadership in the church.
1 Corinthians 12:14-18 tells us that God arranges the members of His Body according to his plan. Each of us has an important role; no role is more important than any other. We are all spiritually connected to one another.
