First, becoming a member tells the world that you are committed to Jesus Christ. To be a member means that you have confessed your faith in Jesus and have been baptized. Second, it tells others that you are committed to the work of Christ through the church. The Church is called the Bride of Christ. It is the only organization or institution that will last for eternity. Your membership means that you are committed to Christ’s plan for the church—to reach the world. Third, it tells others that you are committed to not only making yourself more Christ-like, but to helping others find a complete life in Christ.
