What is a local church? Why church membership?

Definition of a local church by Art Azurdia: “A local church is a group of Christians who have intentionally united together for the expressed purpose of exercising New Testament Christianity to the glory of God and on behalf of one another in the world.”

Implication: “You cannot experience the Christianity of the New Testament by simply claiming to be a member of the universal church. The full flower of Christian experience is realized only in the context of a local community of faith.”
