We believe that the Bible teaches that membership in a local body of believers is an important step for a Christian to take in his or her walk with Jesus. It is in this context that mutual encouragement and accountability and the means to grow in grace are provided. We believe and have seen that having and adding committed and active members to our number is the only way to minister effectively to the Shoals and to the world abroad.
As a body, we are called to challenge and encourage one another, as well as develop one each member’s gifts and abilities for service.
In order to join our church an aspiring member would only have to be able to answer “yes” to the following five *questions:
- Do you acknowledge yourselves to be sinners in the sight of God, justly deserving His displeasure, and without hope save in His sovereign mercy?
- Do you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and Savior of sinners, and do you receive and rest upon Him alone for salvation as He is offered in the Gospel?
- Do you now resolve and promise, in humble reliance upon the grace of the Holy Spirit, that you will endeavor to live as becomes the followers of Christ?
- Do you promise to support the Church in its worship and work to the best of your ability?
- Do you submit yourselves to the government and discipline of the Church, and promise to study its purity and peace?
*these questions can be found in the PCA’s “Book of Church Order”
