Why Become A Member?

At Sequoia we value the concept of team because... TEAM = Together Everyone Achieves More

What is expected of me as a TEAM member? At Sequoia we will never ask our team members to do more than the Bible clearly teaches. We only expect our team members to be faithful to basic Biblical tenants that are true for every Christian. These responsibilities are outlined in Team Membership Application and the Membership Renewal, which we require member to sign annually. All great teams require commitment, so we recognize the need for a formal membership.

We ask you to commit to membership for four reasons:

1. A Biblical Reason: Christ is committed to the church. "...Christ loved the church, and he gave his life for it." Ephesians 5:25

2. A Cultural Reason: It is an antidote to our society. We live in an age where very few want to be committed to anything...a job...a marriage...our country. This attitude has even produced a generation of "church shoppers and hoppers". Membership swims against the current of Canada's "consumer religion." It is an unselfish decision. Commitment always builds character.

3. A Practical Reason: It defines who can be counted on. Every team must have a roster. Every school must have an enrollment. Every business has a payroll. Every army has an enlistment. Even our country takes a census and requires voter registration. Membership identifies our family ... our committed team members!

4. A Personal Reason: It produces spiritual growth. The New Testament places a major emphasis on the need for Christians to be accountable to each other for spiritual growth. Accountability is a natural byproduct of being committed to a specific church family.
