The difference between a member and an attender is one thing: commitment! Whatever you are committed to determines who you are and what you really value in life. If you commit your life to Christ, that allows you to begin the journey with Him as a Christian. For those who commit themselves to other Christians (PHBC), they enjoy the blessings and benefits of being a member of a spiritual family that is seeking to help all grow into fully devoted followers of Christ!
Benefits of Membership:
1. Everyone needs a place to belong. That's what MEMBERSHIP is all about (Ephesians 2:19). Being a part of PHBC is belonging to one big family of fellow believers who are learning what it means to care for one another.
2. Everyone needs a foundation to live on. That's MATURITY in the Christian life (Ephesians 4:11-16). The church family gives you the motivation to go on with Christ and develop into your highest potential.
3. Everyone needs a function to live out. That's MINISTRY (Romans 12:4-6). One of the best ways to build self-esteem is through performing the function God has SHAPEd you to be. The church family is a place you can express and use this unique SHAPE!
4. Everyone needs a focus to live for. That's MISSION (Philippians 2:13). Making an impact with your life is one of the chief benefits of church membership. You can actually be a part of a world-wide movement that continues to reach millions of people for Christ everywhere (at home, nearby, across America, even to the ends of this earth)!
