Kevin DeYoung on church membership

Kevin DeYoung has a good post on the importance of church membership.  It’s worth reading.  Here are his main points:

1. In joining a church you make visible your commitment to Christ and his people.

2. Making a commitment makes a powerful statement in a low-commitment culture.

3. We can be overly independent.

4. Church membership keeps us accountable.

5. Joining the church will help your pastor and elders be more faithful shepherds.

6. Joining the church gives you an opportunity to make promises.
