Joining Together: A Covenant Membership Class for the Local Church (Student Study Guide)
We live in an era where one’s claim to “believe in Jesus” cannot be taken at face value. Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Baptists, and the liberal university student may all claim to “believe in Jesus”, but they all mean very different things. So how do we protect God’s church from false teachings, unconverted church members, and lawsuits? How do we love and care for people well on the front end of church membership so that they are well prepared to serve the body of Christ? Where do we start when discipling a brand new believer?
This 6-week membership class is designed to be a practical tool for both protecting the church and shepherding someone into church membership. Each chapter has fill-in-the-blanks along the way and the answers can be found in the appendix. There is a weekly challenge at the end of each chapter to help readers apply what they are learning. This book can also be used as a one-on-one discipleship tool for new believers. It systematically covers in a concise and interactive way the doctrine of God, sin, Christ, salvation, Scripture, the church, spiritual disciplines, and the mission of making disciples of all nations.
