How to join 58th Avenue MBC
After accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior, the Bible tells us to associate ourselves with a local New Testament church (Hebrews 10:24-25). A church is always a local, visible assembly of scripturally baptized believers in covenant relationship to carry out the Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ.
At 58th Avenue MBC, we encourage church membership because of its importance in the life of the believer. Joining a local church is an act of submission, commitment, and acceptance of responsibilities. Church membership is essentially an act of humility; it is a willingness to come under the spiritual leadership of a pastor-shepherd and into fellowship of a body of believers who will hold you accountable to your commitment to Christ. We believe that the commitment made by becoming a member of a local church is a vital part of your own growth and maturity as a Christian
You are certainly always welcome to worship without becoming a member here at 58th; but attending 58th Avenue MBC does not make you a member, there is a process to becoming a member.
