Very Important

Church membership is very important in the development of our Christian walk. God has planted you with your church for a divine reason. Seek to be a blessing where God has planted you.

Membership

At ECC we strongly believe that every believer in Christ must consider the question of church membership. The local church is God’s vehicle through which he strengthens and equips his people. Hebrew 10:25 & Matthew 18:19-20. Although church membership is exclusive, it is also clear that church attendance is also open to all.1Corinthians 41:23& Joshua 2:2-4.

3. Build up on another. Colossian 3:16 (to live lives of obedience to Christ)
4. Admonish one another. 1 peter 4:10 ( faithfully with our gifts)
5. Forgive one another. Ephesians 4:32 (and not hold any grudge against each other)
