To become a member at Westminster Chapel, you need to take the membership classes. There are three classes, which meet before the Sunday morning service at 9:00 a.m.
Scripture uses the analogy of the human body and its members to describe the relationship of individual believers in the local church. The context of Romans 12 and 1 Corinthians 12 has the local congregation in view, not the universal church. Believers are called to recognize their place and function within a local church body. As Paul says, “for as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another” (Romans 12:4-5). Each member is called to serve and honour the body, “that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another” (1 Corinthians 12:25). Church membership is the visible expression of our commitment to the local body of believers.
