The Church Member's Manual

The Church Member's Manual

What is the purpose of membership in the local church? What are the expectations of the church member? These questions are explored and answered in this book which offers scripturally based directives for productive service in the local church. Calling upon thirty years of ministry and a lifetime in the church, Patrick L. Kelly argues that church members need to be taught about the responsibilities and duties of local church membership. Modern churchgoers are more concerned about benefits and privileges, but he points to the necessity of partnership and cooperation. When believers also view membership as an opportunity to covenant with and serve the body of Christ through a local ministry, greater productivity in the Kingdom of God can be accomplished. The Church Member’s Manual will enable the individual to know exactly what is expected of him or her, and to be equipped for maximum productivity in the local church. more
