Joining the Church is about two things:
1 Following, trusting and loving God and Jesus;
2 Taking part in the things the Church does.
The most important part is the first part. It’s important to come to faith in God, through Jesus. It’s important to trust in Jesus and to be aware of the forgiving, making new and help he gives to people who trust him.
God wants people to love him and to follow his ways for living. God wants people to know that he loves them, that he forgives them, that he makes them new and that he gives them hope for life and good reasons to live for him.
The second part also matters. God wants people to get together and to work together not only to help their own faith, but to make a difference in the world. For all its faults, the Church is about making that difference in God’s name.
Therefore joining the Church is first of all about faith. Then it’s about the organisation. But it is all about God, and about our response of love to a God who loved us first.
