A Simple Question Every Professing Christian Who is not a Member of a Church Needs to Answer

Where does the Bible say I have to join a church


Hebrews 13:17 says, “Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account, so that they can do this with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you” (CSB).

Here’s the main question with a follow up question:

Who are your “leaders” that God is commanding you to obey and submit to?

Follow up question: Have you clearly and explicitly communicated that you are under their leadership and watch in such a way that there is a mutual understanding between you and your leader(s)?

This, in effect, is a crucial component that necessitates what many call “church membership.”

What are your thoughts, comments, or questions? Let me know if you think this does or does not imply church membership.
