Next Steps

“We must grasp once again, the idea of church membership as being the membership of the body of Christ and as the biggest honor which can come a man's way in this world.”

Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Next Steps is all about defining what it means to be a part of the New Song Church family.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer once said the church is not a religious community of worshippers of Christ but is Christ himself who has taken form among people.

Church membership is not about getting your name on a list. It’s not about carrying around a little card- like a gym or Costco membership that gets you into the building. Church membership is a declaration. It’s declaring that you are a member of the universal church through faith in Christ and have been baptized into the church through the Spirit. It’s declaring that you have found a local church- a local body of believers to commit to so that you may fully experience the body principles of 1 Corinthians chapter 12.

Church membership at New Song is about more than padding a list, recruiting volunteers, or helping you make friends. This is about inviting you to step fully into the greatest honor- being an active member of the body of Christ.

We hope you will prayerfully consider the invitation!

Pastors Josh & Sarah
