Who is membership for? What are the basic requirements for becoming a member at Good Shepherd?
Membership is not something that is just for the “spiritual elite” or those who have “made it” as Christians. Rather, membership is for everyone who considers Good Shepherd to be their church home and regular worshipping community. The basic requirements of membership are baptism, public profession of faith in and obedience to Jesus Christ and commitment to the body of Christ as it occurs in and through the people, ministry and mission of Good Shepherd.
What are the key benefits of becoming a member?
The Church community provides its members with a sense of belonging in the context of spiritual friendship. Being a member means you receive the benefit of the community’s love, support and care. Belonging to the church means that you believe that these people are your people, a household of faith given to you as a gift from God for your spiritual strengthening and well-being.
