Why Membership Matters


Does it really matter if I’m a member or not? Why do I have to take a class to even become a member? People often ask these questions about our membership process, skeptical as to why there seem to be so many “hoops” to jump through.

It’s true. We take membership seriously and with a lot of gravity. Committing yourself to a body of believers is a big deal.  When members join, they commit to a spiritual family that provides encouragement and support. They are called to a biblical degree of responsibility, service and sacrifice to their brothers and sisters. Our elders and leaders also pledge to assist with care, in counsel, prayer and teaching.

As you think about making a decision to join East Tipp, we offer a class that covers what it means to be a member of the church. We want you to know exactly what it means to join East Tipp Baptist Church.
