We believe strongly in the value of becoming a member at SBFN for several reasons. Here are a few.
We believe that God never intended for us to walk the journey of faith alone. That’s why in the Old Testament He called a people to follow Him and in the New Testament He created the Church and filled it with His Spirit.
We need each other. Anyone who has started an exercise program, joined a book reading club, or overcome an addition knows that it’s a whole lot easier to have others around you supporting you, maybe even participating with you, in that endeavor. The same is true of our spiritual life; living as Christians in this world is much easier when we do it together than if we try it alone.
Together we can do more! By ourselves we can do some great things for God’s kingdom, but when join together we’re able to do way more than we could ever do on our own. Being a part of a denomination allows us to support universities, publishing, missionaries in every country, and much more!
Through membership, we make a commitment to help each other on this journey. Just like a marriage commitment binds a man and a woman together, membership joins us together in a common vision and a common vision for the local church.
Everyone wants a place to call home. Membership in the local church allows you to put down roots, to have a place to call home, to have a family to love, encourage, and pray for your.
Membership is not a requirement to be a part of SBFN, but we believe it’s a great way to express our unity in Jesus here in this local worshiping community.
