Being a member of a local church means that we are committed to other members and
become an important part of their lives. God has designed the church to be a family or a
spiritual home where you can love and be loved, and where you can know others and
be known by others. For example, the Bible commands us to “love one another”, “pray
for one another”, “encourage one another”, “serve one another”, “forgive one another”,
etc. In order to fully obey these commands it requires that we are regularily living out
our faith with our church community.
