Some Benefits and Blessings of Church Membership

  1. It provides a spiritual family where I know I belong, and the family knows I belong.
  2. It gives me a way to place myself under the protection and guidance of godly leaders.
  3. It gives me a voice to use to build up the Body of Christ by influencing the direction and decision-making of the church leadership.  There are times when your voice and vote are vital to the church’s future such as:  when choosing a Senior Pastor, when choosing church officers, when making decisions to build or to buy or sell property.  You also have a voice and vote in reviewing financial statements and having the assurance of financial integrity in how resources are managed.
  4. Membership opens doors of ministry for you in leadership.  It’s a way of saying I am choosing to trust and also be trusted.
  5. I think that it should be a joy to be able to say, “I am a member of…” just as we identify ourselves in this way with other organizations.
  6. We need one another!  Membership says that loud and clear.

Our membership covenant simply says:

  1. I will protect the unity of my church: by acting in love toward other members, by refusing to gossip, and by following the leaders.
  2. I will share the responsibilities of my church: by praying for its growth, by inviting the unchurched to attend, and by warmly welcoming those who visit.
  3. I will serve the ministry of my church: by discovering my gifts and talents, by being equipped to serve, and by developing a servant’s heart.
  4. I will support the testimony of my church: by attending faithfully, by living a godly life, and by giving regularly.

We believe Calvary Church is a great place to belong!  It is also a great place to attend even if you’re not a member.  And there are many ways to serve without being a member, but we still believe there is great value in church membership.
