Requirements
Paul mentions two different types of commitments in 2 Corinthians 8:5 (GNB): “First they gave themselves to the Lord; and then, by God’s will, they gave themselves to us as well.”  At Joint Heirs,  first-base is turning from sin and receiving God's Grace in salvation ("Born Again" John 3:1-3) for the remission of sin and then you commit yourself to other Christians for service through membership in a local church.
A Spiritual Covenant
Throughout biblical and church history; spiritual covenants have been made between people for mutual edification and accountability. At Joint Heirs, we have prayerfully summarized three requirements for membership:
·         You Must be Born Again! Repentance and a personal confession in Christ as Savior and Lord,
·         Completion of the Membership Orientation Class
·         A signed commitment to your willful desire to unite in membership at Joint Heirs.

Benefits

FAITHFUL MEMBERSHIP

Church membership is an act of commitment. At Joint Heirs, we give meaning and value to a membership, believing that God’s Word and Kingdom is advanced through many members showing forth one Body of Christ.    
There are numerous benefits to membership; here are some we emphasize:
·         It identifies you as a genuine Believer (Eph. 2:19; Rom. 12:5).
·         It provides a spiritual family to support and encourage you in your walk with Christ (Gal. 6:1-2; Heb. 10:24-25).
·         It gives you a place to discover and use your gifts in ministry.  (1 Cor. 12:4-27; Rom. 12:3-5; Eph. 4:11-16; 1 Pet. 4:10).
·         It places you under the Spiritual protection of Godly Leaders (Heb. 13:17; Acts 20:28-29).
·         It gives you the accountability you need to grow (Eph. 5:21; Reference, “One Another” and “Each Other” Scriptures).
