“Committing one to another Membership”
What it means to be a covenant member of The International Christian Fellowship Marbella.
Be a member of the Body of Christ. 1. Cor 12:18, 22,”the members that appear to be (the) weakest are (the most) necessary.”
Have communion, participate, have part, share with God, and with other Christians. We are collaborators, militia partners, co-heirs, partners, etc.
Having brothers who care about us. 1 Cor 12:26
Having brothers who help us if we stumble. Ga 6: 1.2.
Having siblings who will apply discipline if we are stubborn. 2 Ts. 3: 6 “that you turn away from every brother who walks in disorder.” This is an act of love to save the soul.
The local Church is, then, “support group” It is our refuge or shelter. In daily activities we face problems of all kinds, but here we have spiritual meetings to feed, strengthen and encourage ourselves.
A Christian member of the International Christian Association of Marbella is a person who has received Christ by faith as his Savior and Lord, having been baptized and in accordance with the doctrine, rules and discipline of the church/association, decides everything heart join the spiritual family that is the church.
