In yesterday’s sermon, we spent a few minutes talking about church membership and how Titus 1:5 speaks to the importance of committing to one local church.

Back in 2014, someone asked John Piper about “church hopping” and the importance of committing to one church. If you’re still unsure about the importance of church membership, his eight-minute answer (link below) is well worth your time.

Pastor John shares five passages in Scripture to explain why Christians belong in accountable, local church communities.
