Welcome to NLCW Church's
Membership Class

The purpose of this manual is to introduce you to NLCWC – who we are, what we believe and how we are following God into our community. It is to help you get to know us better, so you can make an informed choice about your commitment to belong to our church family.

Why Becoming A
Member Matters

Membership is our way of committing to journeying with you, as you commit to journeying with us! It’s about relationship and commitment, not about joining another organization or institution. Visitors and attenders will always be welcome at NLCWC, but our members are part of our family, they share our vision, our beliefs and our love of God. We believe membership represents an important biblical principle of an individual committing to a ‘body’ of believers and that ‘body’ of believers in turn committing itself to the individual Christian.

“Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about 3,000 were added to their number that day. They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to their fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” -Acts 2:41, 42


…You are a member of God’s very own family…and you belong in God’s household with every other Christian.” -Ephesians 2:19

The invisible Church consists of all Christians everywhere and across time. The visible church, however, is a local expression of the Church.

It has been said, “You can’t be part of the Church which is everywhere without being part of the church which is somewhere.”

God builds His Kingdom through the Church – none of us individually can be the Body of Christ.

The Big Question:
-Why should you become a member of NLCWC?

The Best Answer:
-To be a part of building and maintaining the local church vision!

Common Opinions on
Church Membership

1. We ought to give to the church where we attend.
(We ought to support the storehouse where we get our food.)

2. For the most part, we ought to attend the church where we belong.

3. We don’t have to agree 100% with everything to join a church.
(All issues are not of equal weight. There are doctrines, lifestyle and “snapshot convictions.” It may not be about agreeing so much as recognizing and respecting.)
