Why Church Membership?

 
 As Christians, we can persevere because of the Holy Spirit and through the encouragement and community we find with our fellow brothers and sisters. Hebrews 10: 24- 25 (ESV) says, “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” When we gather on Sundays or for our small groups we are practicing what the Bible teaches. As we gather, it is an opportunity for us to be convicted and encouraged, and then from that we are compelled to go out and share the Good News that Jesus is Christ is King and He made a way for us to know God.
 
Being a part of a local church body, allows you to minister to others and be ministered to in difficult times. At First Baptist we call ourselves a fellowship of love. We strive to encourage each other.
