Membership

Acts 2 we see that a people are being marked off. They are repenting and being baptized. They are devoting themselves to the apostles teaching. They share fellowship, the breaking of bread, and prayer. They call themselves “believers” and share everything in common, including their possessions and goods as people have needs. This is the beginning of the church. And it started at a prayer meeting. God wants his people to be known and marked off. He wants a "spiritual line" between the church and the world. (Romans 12:1-2) You need a body of Christ to be the body of Christ. You need a family of God to be the family of God. Once you are chosen by God in Christ, you are called into the body too. Choose the Father and the Son and you have to choose the whole family – which you do through a local church.
