Everyone who is in Christ is a full member of the body of Christ. That said, no one stands alone. Our life in Christ is a life we live out in covenant partnership with a local community of Jesus' people.
If you are interested in becoming a member or a covenant partner of Lambrick, you can start the process here, by filling out the attached document below.
Why do we talk about membership at Lambrick? Because, biblically, church isn't something that we go to once a week. It is something that we are together. At its core, the church is a covenant community. The community of those whom God has callled together and called out - joining together in a common commitment to Christ, to a shared pursuit (vision, mission, values), and to one another. That's what it means to be the church, and so that's why we talk about and actively encourage everyone to enter into covenant partnership with us.
The language of 'membership' can suggest rights and privileges, and being part of the the 'in crowd', which is not at all what membership in the church is about. That's why at Lambrick we use the term covenant partnership. Covenant Partnership emphasizes sharing the responsibility, playing your part, and working together to acheive a common goal.
And that's what this is about. That's what Lambrick needs and what we believe God wants.
If this is where you're at, then we'd invite you to explore the "What, Why and How" of membership with us, and to tell us a little more about yourself through the attached "Exploring Membership" page below. Get this in to us and we'll be in touch to continue the conversation.
