Did 1st century Christians have membership?

Wasn’t the early church informal gatherings in houses? Yes. However, while the first century church gatherings were very informal, their commitment to one another wasn’t casual.

Membership in the early church was simple, yet powerful. After coming to faith to Christ, new believers were baptized and joined a committed community of believers who were cared for one another, preserved the faithful teaching of God’s word and shared the gospel in their communities.

Perhaps you are ready to make such a commitment to preserve and spread the gospel by becoming a member at Redeemer, or maybe you are interested in knowing more about the church before doing so. Feel free to RSVP for our next membership class:
