Membership

As Christians, we are members of God’s household (Eph. 2:19) called to function, participate, and minister in a particular place within the body of Christ. A healthy body requires that each member do its part well. A healthy church requires the same: members who are sacrificially committed and well-equipped to do the works of service that God has prepared in advance for us to do (Eph. 2:10; 4:12). Southway Community Church (SCC) holds its members in high regard; we expect them to lead inside SCC and as missionaries of the gospel to the culture. God, in his sovereignty, placed us in this city, among these people, in this century, for a reason (Acts 17:26-27).

Why Membership?

SCC is a family (Gal. 4:6-7; Eph. 1:5). We care for each other, pray for each other, and serve together. We value membership as a public expression of a deeper commitment of the church.

What are the benefits of being a member?

Scripture calls us a body, a family, a household–being a Christian is not a solo effort. Jesus works through the church (Eph. 2:10), the church is Jesus’ body (1 Cor. 12:27), and apart from Jesus, you can do nothing (John 15). Additionally, only members are allowed to vote in congregational meetings.
