This >per relationship Is estab j hied when a person becomes Christian. No one can be ne a good church member ' ess he has experienced the ? birth. rhis experience of saving ice must occur before irch membership. A person "ss not join the church to saved. He presents hitn f as a candidate for church :mbership after he Is saved an act of obedience to Jesus rlst, his Savior. rhe public act of Joining a jrch is one of the bestways * a person ts make an open rfession of faith in Christ, e Christians In the New stameot, as a rule. Joined ! church immediately after 7 were saved. The open ifession of faith is not to 1 when one Is received Into "irch membership. It is to condnuous and Is to be lected In how a person lives a Christian. rhe second relationship ln ved and Included in New ?lament church member - ,p is the relationship with ier believers. If there were other believers, there uld be no church id join, is is true because theBible ines a church as being a iy, or group of baptized llevers united to carry out rlsfs plan and purpose on Vth. The first group of be vers In the New Tesumeat s a visible group which used a visible, public *oar. When a person unites with ?church, he identifies hlm If with, and becomes a part 1 this body of believers. This :ans that he has fellowship th other Christians. He Is to are In the joys and privt ;es, as well as the work and tivitles, of the group If this Jowshlp is to be complete d is to remain unbroken. The *st test of the sincerity of a rson's religion Is his ability get along agreeably with low believers in day by day 1ng. The third relationship in lved and included In church smbershlp is the relation ip with a great Task. This sk Is the plan and purpose Jesus Christ for advancing s Kingdom on earth. There "e personal and collective pects of this Task on the part die believer. Each has his ice of service in Kingdom irk. Every one is included the design of Chrlstforwin ig the world to Himself and tabllshlng His Kingdom. There is something des rately wrong with church smbershlp that does not re It in supreme loyalty to \rlst and dedication tofruit l, faithful service to Him. !W Testament church mem - rship calls for discipleship the highest type - a total d complete surrender of e, time, talent, and re urces to Jesus Christ. In of being merely ents in the house of Christians should be |?rkmen going out Into the uirld In the work of wttnes ng and proclaiming the good ws of the Gospel. In conclusion, church mem - rship means that a person >lo has come to know Jesus trlst ss Savior, Inobedience (Him, expresses outwardly list has happened to him Jf Inwardly and freely es blishing an active, personal d dedicated and continuous "ltftfonship with other be tvsrs and actively engages J the resources and effors his command In the task (.advancing the Kingdom of id on earth. ttvivol Strvkts Andrews - Revival services Jill begin March 14 at the ririt Baptist Church.

It is odd then, that in the spiritual area of life some people should expect blessings to come far the asking. Those who really understand PRAYER know that ifs more than mere asking. It is seeking. It is the hungry search for truth and moral enlightenment . . . digging for spiritual gold in the hills of life. But PRAYER is something more even than seeking. It is knocking . . . meeting life's obstacles bravely . . . waiting with patient determination until closed doors open ... en tering portals that the more timid pass by. We wouldn't really need churches if spir itual growth came for the asking. But we do need churches to help us seek the treasures of God.
