What It Means To Be A Member

The difference between attenders and members can be summed up in one word...commitment. At First Denham we recognize the need for a formal membership. We ask you to commit to membership for four reasons...

1. A Biblical Reason: Christ is committed to the church. "...Christ loved the church, and he gave his life for it.”- Ephesians 5:25

2. A Cultural Reason: It is an antidote to our society. We live in an age where very few want to be committed to anything...a job...a marriage...our country. This attitude has even produced a generation of “church shoppers and hoppers”. Membership swims against the current of America’s “consumer religion.” It is an unselfish decision.Commitment always builds character.

3. A Practical Reason: It defines who can be counted on. Every team must have a roster.Every school must have an enrollment. Every business has a payroll. Every army has an enlistment. Even our country takes a census and requires voter registration. Membership identifies our family.

4. A Personal Reason: It produces spiritual growth. The New Testament places a major emphasis on the need for Christians to be accountable to each other for spiritual growth. You cannot be accountable when you’re not committed to any specific church family.

What is expected of me as a member?

At First Denham we never ask our members to do more than the Bible clearly teaches. We only expect our members to do what the Bible expects every Christian to do.
