Membership

We desire every person who attends BC to become a PARTNER/MEMBER. Partnership is like membership but so much more.


It’s not your name on some list, it’s a relationship and commitment from the church and from you to reach this city and to advance God’s Kingdom TOGETHER.


WHY DO I NEED TO BECOME A PARTNER OF BC?


At BC we recognize the need for a formal partnership, and there are four reasons you desire that you partner at a local church:


1. A Biblical Reason:


Christ is committed to the Church!


“…Christ loved the church, and he gave his life for it.” Eph. 5:25



2. A Cultural Reason:


Partnership Destroys Consumerism!


We live in an age where very few want to be committed to anything…a job…a marriage…our country.


This attitude has even produced a generation of “church shoppers and hoppers”. Partnership swims against the current of America’s “consumer religion.”


It is an unselfish decision. Commitment always builds character.


3. A Practical Reason:


Who Can We Count On?


Every team must have a roster. 

Every school must have an enrollment. 

Every business has a payroll. 

Every army has an enlistment.


Even our country takes a census and requires voter registration. 

Parntership identifies our family.


4. A Personal Reason:


Partnership Produces Spiritual Growth!


The New Testament places a major emphasis on the need for Christians to be accountable to each other for 

spiritual growth.


You cannot be accountable when you’re not committed to any specific church family.
