Become a Member of “Life in Glory” ACC

In order for a believer to become a member of the local church, they must be willing to share their lives with other believers in a way that is worthy of God’s calling – as “a chosen race, a royal priesthood and a holy nation”; reflecting the glory of God and the righteousness through a life dedicated to God’s work
(1 Corinthians 2:9; 2 Corinthians 3:18).

Why Is Membership Important?

The history of the early church clearly shows that all people who accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, were being added to the church to be a part of the family of God (Acts 2:47). Therefore, membership in the local church is a vital biblical principle for the spiritual growth of every believer after their being born again.

The role of each believer, as a member of the church, is to be dedicated to the covenant community of believers, who form a local church and together with them to share the responsibilities and privileges of its building up and operation in the work of Christ. Each member of the Church contributes through their calling, gifts and finances, for the building up of the church, in order to extend God’s kingdom on earth.
