Why should you join a church?
Becoming a member of a church is an important, and often neglected, part of the Christian life. Yet the trend these days is one of shunning the practice of organized religion and showing a distaste or fear of commitment, especially of institutions.
Jonathan Leeman addresses these issues with a straightforward explanation of what church membership is and why it's important. Giving the local church its proper due, Leeman has built a compelling case for committing to the local body.

What members say
- Dustin Pecor
I will hopefully be joining my local church body this fall. This book gave me a much deeper understanding of the commitment and what it means. Well worth the read! God bless!
I appreciated the amount of scripture used.
Most of the stances in the book are taken directly out of a traditional Christian Bible. I might argue on some interpretation and very slight political ideology spillover but overall the book is internally consistent. It is accurately inline with traditional churching.
I very much agree with his take on what the Church is and what a church is. Also excellent ideas on the community in a church family.
If you identify as a Christian read this book. :)
A bigger picture of how to be the Church of Jesus Christ
Jonathan Lehman paints a very good scriptural picture of how the church of Christ is meant to operate, with local bodies of the church being like families who hold each other accountable, support, love, instruct and occasionally discipline when necessary the members for the glory of Jesus Christ. An encouraging book laid out from scriptural wisdom and real experience.
