Boundless Websize has a recent article about Christian college students and many of the reasons which they give for not regularly attending a local church. The article goes on to state that Christian take church membership far too casually, and does a pretty decent job of backing that claim up. More folks of my generation should do a little reflection for the role and purpose which church attendance and membership plays.
Churches should teach all of their members that membership is not a flippant decision, but a commitment to serve Christ through the ministry of a specific local church…Christians are expected to live their lives in the faith, and the biblical way to do that is within the context of a local church. If we don’t, both our faith and our witness suffers.
