Is Church Membership Mandatory for Christians?

Thu, Nov. 07, 2013 Posted: 11:55 PM

Some Christians claim there is no biblical requirement for church membership. In this video pastor David Platt says the Bible doesn't command membership but does imply that Christians should be members of a local church. Platt says one of the key roles of the church is accountability.

Platt asks, "Are an accountable member of a local church? ... Who are the leaders that your life is in submission to who are accountable for your spiritual growth? And if you can't answer that question, the reality is you are living contrary to the pattern of the New Testament."
