The Gospel makes us family. Jesus has established His church to work out what it means to be in God’s family. Church membership is about a mutual commitment between you and the people and place of Rock Hill. As Christians we are called to set ourselves under the care and authority of a local church as the majority of the New Testament takes place within the context of the local church. This happens at Rock Hill through membership.
Membership at Rock Hill is a commitment to live out our core identities as worshipers, learners, family, servants, and witnesses in community with other members of Rock Hill. Membership moves us from consumers to participants. It is an acknowledgment that our salvation in Jesus is not a private relationship but one which we are to identify with publicly. We do this by joining the visible local church, an expression of God’s global Church, and setting ourselves under its authority and care. Membership is a commitment to serve and partner with other members in the church and the leadership of the church to grow together in grace and love toward God and each other. We commit to encourage one another in seeing the Gospel transform our lives, our church, our city, and our world.
