Thank you for your interest in church membership and in making Parkwood Gospel Church your home! Below are some common questions we often receive regarding membership.
What is church membership?
Membership is an important step for those who deeply identify with the community of faith at Parkwood and are ready to help us accomplish our mission in the church, in the city and beyond.
Membership says, “I belong here,” and God says that believers belong together.
Membership says, “I accept responsibility for my church family’s spiritual growth,” and God says we need each other.
Membership says, “I am accountable to my church family for my walk with God,” and God warns against spiritual autonomy.
Hebrews 13:17; Matthew 18:15-20
Membership says, “I accept responsibility for helping to get things done,” and God says we all must do our part.
1 Corinthians 12:20-27
Why become a member?
Membership tells us that you are formally committing to the mission and vision of Parkwood and are mutually accountable to the leadership. It tells us that you are willing to take ownership of and responsibility for our church family by giving your time, talents and treasures.
Without membership, the government would not recognize Parkwood as a charitable organization. Without that designation, Parkwood would not be able to function as it needs to.
