Covenant Membership is for those who wish to become legal, voting Members of WMB Church. We encourage those who have declared their personal commitment to Jesus through baptism to commit to membership for four reasons:
A Biblical Reason
Christ is committed to the Church. “…Christ loved the church, and He gave His life for it.” (Ephesians 5:25)
A Cultural Reason
It is an antidote to our society’s aversion to commitment. We live in an age where commitments – to a job, a marriage, our country – are easily and often taken lightly. This attitude has produced a generation of “church shoppers and hoppers.” Membership swims against the current of “consumer religion.” It is an unselfish decision. Commitment always builds character.
A Personal Reason
It produces spiritual growth. The New Testament places a major emphasis on the need for Christians to be accountable to each other for spiritual growth. In becoming a member of a local church, we formalize our commitment to Christ and to one another.
A Practical Reason
It defines who’s entitled to a vote in legal decision-making processes, like affirming Leadership Board members or approving a budget.
Becoming a Member
We require that you attend WMB for 6 months prior to becoming a Member, and then participate in the following process:
This Is WMB: This Disciple Maker course introduces adults to our mission, vision, strategies for discipleship and the role of membership at WMB Church.
Membership Interviews: Share your faith story with a member of our Leadership Board.
Membership Sunday: Participate in a special service to welcome new members.
