The difference between attenders and members can be summed up in one word: commitment.

1. A Biblical Reason: Christ is committed to the Church.

Jesus died so the church could be the redeemed and restored people of God. We’re made for biblical community, which supports our transformation to become more like Jesus. 

2. A Cultural Reason: Commitment Builds Character.

Our society is averse to commitments . . . a job . . . a marriage . . . our country. We are a generation of consumer religion. We are transient. Yet, we become what we are committed to through perseverance to a cause or community. 

3. A Practical Reason: It defines who can be counted on.

Every team has a roster. Every school an enrollment. Every business a payroll. Every army an enlistment. Membership identifies and aligns our family to one another, God and His mission in our community. 

4. A Personal Reason: It Produces Spiritual Growth.

The New Testament places a major emphasis on the need for Christians to be accountable to each other for spiritual growth (think of church conflict, discipline, compassion, mission). You cannot be accountable when you’re not known or committed to any specific church family.
