A growing trend in Baptist churches is for people to attend the services, but not really become part of the church. In fact, many of these people do not know how important church membership is to the believer's life. Church membership is not optional. It is mandatory for those who desire to please the Lord. Tonight's lesson focuses on this very important issue in the doctrine of the church. Tonight's sermon: Church Membership. [I Love the Church lesson 5]
