Thought for the Week: “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us - for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”- so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith. (Galatians 3:13-14) But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ.                                                                         1 Corinthians 15:20-23

About Membership: This is a step of mutual affirmation. For the applicant—it is to affirm their desire to unite with this local body of believers. It is an alignment with our doctrine, polity, and philosophy of ministry and to walk in covenant community together. For the church family—it is an affirmation that they are co-witnesses together with us of Christ’s life in us—the hope of glory. This is recognition that we have been born of the Spirit and have been baptized together in Christ and that we will walk together in newness of life until Jesus returns. We recognize that this local expression of the body of Christ is but a part of the larger overall expression of the body of Christ in the world.

Missionary Newsletters can be found on our Missions Board in the foyer. All the latest postings can be read there.
