At BROWN, we believe that the Christian life is not meant to be lived in isolation. Rather, it is meant to be lived in community (Acts 2:42, Hebrews 10:24-25). In fact, we believe God has placed in every believer a desire to learn, grow, serve, pray, worship, and invest with other believers. That is why we believe church membership is a very important, healthy, and natural response to the Gospel at work in the life of every Christian. When understood properly, church membership is an incredible privilege and a blessing for the follower of Christ, who seeks to grow in the Lord. The regular gathering of believers, committed to one another, for the purpose of worship, teaching, prayer, fellowship, and the sacraments, is a vital part of the discipleship process of every believer. Therefore, membership is a meaningful part of the growth of every Christ-follower, yet it is also an equally meaningful part of the life of a healthy church.
