MEMBERSHIP

To be a member of a church is to make a public promise to live according to the Word and to support the work of the congregation. In the Bible this is called a covenant. Every Christian is part of the church when we think about it, but only by a public promise can someone be part of the church as an organization. A public promise, or covenant, is the basis for all society according to the Bible: college, marriage, employment, citizenship and church membership are all relationships of accountability.

 

Membership in a church is not like membership in a social club or other organization. Most organization members are consumers — the organization exists to serve them. The church is a completely different community — membership means ministry and service, going from being a consumer to becoming a provider of God’s love and care to others. At ODPC, we take this seriously that we are a church not for ourselves, but for others.
