The first step of a disciple of Jesus is to practice what He practiced in Baptism.
It is an outward symbol of what God has done in the life, heart, and spirit of His followers and naturally follows Salvation.
The next step is being committed to a group of other disciples.
This means being part of a church.
We call that commitment partnership.
We refer to church members as partners because that word really helps define the idea of what church “membership” is all about. It’s not about gaining access to status or privileges the way that membership in a professional association or even a local gym describes. It’s about partnering with like-minded believers to build a community of faith.
