Membership is a big deal! Why? Because it is a step that Christ desires for us to take in following Him.
The first invitation of Jesus is for us to simply Be With Him.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” – Matthew 11:28 (NIV)
The second invitation of Jesus is for us to Believe or place our trust in Him.
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me”. – John 14:1 (NIV)
The third invitation of Jesus is for us to Belong to His Church, His followers, His Body.
If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. – Romans 14:8 (NIV)
The fourth invitation of Jesus is for us to Become more and more like Him.
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world, we are like Jesus. – 1 John 4:16-17 (NIV)
So membership is important for you but is also important for the organization and structure of our church. Our membership annually votes on our operating budget for the fiscal year (May-April) and also elects our “elders” that help work with our executive staff throughout the year to help chart the course for the future of Keystone. Having a voice is great. Having a voice and a vote is even better. In order to become a member, you need to attend a Membership Class which occurs twice a year. To find out when our next membership class will take place, please contact our office firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-944-5397.
After participating in our Membership Class, if it is your desire to become a member of Keystone Church and by association, The Weseleyan Church International, please take a moment to complete this membership application.
All members are asked to reaffirm your membership annually by April 20th of each year by completing the reaffirmation form.
