MEMBERSHIP - Why is Membership important?
Do I have to become a member in order to attend church or call it "my church"? NO!!
But should you? YES!
If you have committed yourself to Christ and you feel as though God has brought you to the
church you are attending and you feel it is your church home, then you should commit yourself
to that body.
Membership Reflects What the Church Is "1 Corinthians 12:12-27 (NIV)"
Membership is often misunderstood, misapplied or not applied at all. Becoming a church member means not thinking of yourself as an individual but making a decision to be bonded to others.
It is not a dictatorship, a social club, secret society, or a click; but membership gives you a sense of ownership and belonging. It is governed by the Pastor, Associates, Elders and/or Deacon Board. The Laypersons (attenders) that are on the roll as members, have certain rights within the church as the member that nonmembers do not have, such as the privilege of voting for directions of the church and many other important aspects including attending financial and other church related meetings and having a voice in those meetings.
People need membership commitment because they need to be connected to a Christian community" Ephesians 4:12-16 (NIV)"
Being committed to a church body is what God intended us; for our spiritual growth, to worship in unity with our fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord, to fellowship and to go out and to be a witness to world making disciples.
In joining a church you make visible your commitment to Christ and his people "Acts 2:42-47 (NIV)"
Not committing yourself to a church body will cause you to lose accountability and credibility, as it can and will cause you to become unstable in your spiritual walk and possibly fall-away and in your witness to others. Those whom you talk to about the Lord can and often will see you as unstable in your walk.
Being committed to a church body the church as a whole and as individuals, we are mandated not only to live a life that reflects Christ’s nature but also to be active witnesses of him so that, through us, the world will come to know Jesus and be saved.
One Church. one vision!
STARTED WITH A DREAM
NVUM started with a dream to help God's people who were in need. After relocating to Oakley in 2006 from Northern Illinois, Pastor's Dow and Deb Moses took over the former Harvest Temple Church of God (Cleveland Tenn) and moved to West Grove, Decatur. In 2015 with a compassionate toward the community - Harvest Temple was sold and New Vision Urban Ministries was born and found its new home at the former Ice House on West Eldorado Street.
