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