We ask you to commit for four reasons:

1. A biblical reason: Christ is committed to the church

2. A culture 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 place a major emphasis on the need for Christian to be accountable to each other for spiritual growth. You cannot be accountable when you’re not committed to any specific church family.

The difference between “attendees” and "members" can be summed up in one word- COMMITMENT! An attender is a consumer.  A member is a producer.
