TCW believes in church membership. We believe it’s biblical, we believe it promotes spiritual growth and maturity, and we believe it helps protect the peace and purity of the church. For those interested in exploring the biblical reasons for church membership, we highly recommend these articles:
Anyone and everyone is welcome to pursue membership at TCW. Everyone who can answer the following questions in the affirmative will be admitted to membership.
- Do you acknowledge yourself to be a sinner in the sight of God, justly deserving His displeasure, and without hope [except for] His sovereign mercy?
- Do you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and Savior of sinners, and do you receive and rest upon Him alone for salvation as He is offered in the Gospel?
- Do you now resolve and promise, in humble reliance upon the grace of the Holy Spirit, that you will endeavor to live as becomes the followers of Christ?
- Do you promise to support the Church in its worship and work to the best of your ability?
- Do you submit yourself to the government and discipline of the Church, and promise to study (promote) its purity and peace?
