What is Church Membership?
Church membership is a commitment to God and to local church.
Our leadership team identifies five tenets, biblical standards of living for members and leaders. Having received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and having been baptized as a believer by immersion, you commit yourself to God and to other members of the Townsend Church family to invest in the church through: active participation, generous giving, service through spiritual gifts, commitment to living a holy life and involvement in God-honoring relationships. These five tenets are biblical standards that have been set before us in the scriptures as established by God.

    Membership Week 5: Holy Living
    Series: Membership
    In Titus 2,  Paul writes to Titus "live soberly, righteously and godly in the present age."  The Lord's grace gave us the gift of salvation. Paul explains the proper response to this grace is holy living.  As we grow in our relationship with Him and understand His good works, holy living no longer feels like a requirement but becomes something we desire. Let us honor the Lord's good and selfless work, consider the scriptures and strive to live a holy life.

    A proper focus on who God is and who you are in God opens up spiritual doors. The Holy Spirit gives gifts as he sees fit for the edification of the church.  " As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God."  1 Peter 4:10.
