In the New Testament we see Christians belonging to clearly identifiable communities: local churches. They shared life with each other, they were committed to their leadership, and they welcomed new converts into this community:
“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers… And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” (Acts 2:42, 46-47)
We’re looking to build King’s on the principles we see in the New Testament, and membership is how we give definition to what the passage above, and others like it, describes.
We run a course called “Explore Membership” several times a year for people who have been attending King’s for a while and want to make it their home. It’s a chance to meet the leaders, hear more about the story of King’s, ask questions and discover how to play your part.
You can download the booklet that accompanies the course, explaining what King’s believes and what we do, here.
