Membership

Membership at RHC

Church membership makes the Gospel visible in the life of the church.  It expresses how Christ has saved us and brought us into the community of God’s people.  The essence of membership is committed love and membership tangibly displays the unity and the diversity of the body of Christ.  There are many commands which are impossible to obey without being committed to a local church, such as communion and baptism.  Jesus said “whoever loves God must also love his brother” (1 John 4:21).  The local church becomes the place where we put into practice the fruit of the Spirit within real relationships.  This is why we need the church to grow as Christians.  Through discipling one another in the local church, we gain assurance of our own salvation.  We disciple one another by helping one another grow in Christ through teaching, encouraging and correcting.  Membership also defines who the shepherds in the church are accountable for and who can be depended upon to fulfil our mission as the church.

In 2014, we had a seven-week preaching series on membership in the body of Christ.  These sermons are recorded and you can listen to them here.  Read "Why Membership" to find out more!

Membership at a local church is for everyone who is a disciple of Jesus Christ.  At Redemption Hill Church, our membership process includes attending a Membership Class to help you understand our values, the commitments and to let us know how to care for you better.  It also requires meeting with an elder and baptism as a believer.

We run Membership Classes throughout the year.  Each class consists of three two-hour sessions that explain what we believe as a church, why it's important to be a member of a local church, and what we plan to do here in Singapore and in Asia.

The next class has been scheduled on 10, 17 and 24 September 2017 (Sunday), 1.30pm to 3.30pm.  To sign up, please click here or email membership@rhc.org.sg for more information.
