Many Churches have what’s called an, “extending the right hand of fellowship service”. Folks are usually brought before the Church and are given opportunity to declare the Lordship of Jesus in their lives to the Congregation and asked if they will adhere to the Doctrine and Ordinances of the Church etc. With yes to all prompts the Church fellowship extends it open arms to all new members. Membership in many Churches consists of a mini-class of instruction in order to educate new members with pertinent facts concerning that particular fellowship. To include but not limited to, their Doctrinal Position, the history of that Church and it’s vision. Also included would be a role-out of what if any classes are offered and Ministries one could be a part-taker of. Most Churches have no rules concerning who attends, as most fellowships are open to the public, with only basic in house behavior rules applying. However to become a member of that fellowship, as noted above one must have a salvation experience. This of course is good judgement because, membership equates to fellowship and in order for there to be good fellowship there must be agreement. Considering the number of Denominations and religions in the world one can see why unity of truth is paramount. It would be a unique Church where everyone agreed on everything. Be sure in any great work for God their must be unity in core truths, Amos 3:3; can two walk together except they be agreed?
Light the Way Ministry is an On-Line Church Ministry, with no four walls. We promote the local Church effort and mandate. We do not receive tithes from members who go to local Churches, unless of course they have no local Church. We do receive offerings and donations from various sources. You can be a member of your local Church and a partner with us. Habakkuk 2:2, says to write the vision and make it plain, upon tables, that he may run that reads it. With that, if you have read our Mission Statement and agree with it and Jesus is Lord of your life, we would love to hear from you. Most have heard the old saying; “membership has it’s privileges”, that could be said here as well. When a person becomes one of our members they have access to some of the best teachings and Bible Studies available anywhere but the material is password protected and you must have a Login.
