HOW TO JOIN A CHURCH
Kevin DeYoung has an excellent article that will help you think about how to settle into a new church quickly and well:
“Over ten years in pastoral ministry I’ve seen many new people come to church and I’ve seen a few long-time members leave our church. Some make these moves better than others.”
This is what membership in our church means.
Membership is about saying I want to be apart of what God is doing here at Tamworth Baptist Church. We run membership and baptism classes twice a year to discuss what baptism means, what following Jesus looks like and where TBC is going.
Because we believe that Christians don't just go to church but that they are the church, we make doing life together a priority. Joining a life group is a high priority for our members so they can be prayed for, supported and held accountable.
Jesus said, "It's better to give than to receive."
We don't want to act like church consumers but we want to come and glorify God and serve each other. Serving is a part of belonging, growing and connecting.
We want to both do and support the ministry of making Christ known in this community. We ask members to make TBC their first priority in tithing because we believe in the local church. This is what God is building and we call you to be part of it, to help make it happen.
