Church membership in this post-Christian world has been suffering. One way to address this 21st century challenge is to remind God’s people what church membership truly is. The next five months we will include reminders from Thom S. Rainer’s book “I AM A Church Member”.
The Second Pledge—I am a church member.
I will seek to be a source of unity in my church. I know there are no perfect pastors, staff,
or other church members. But neither am I. I will not be a source of gossip or dissension.
One of the greatest contributions I can make is to do all I can in God’s power to help
keep the church in unity for the sake of the gospel.
