Membership at Rainier Valley is a commitment to our family, and a commitment from our family to you. We take membership seriously. The Bible teaches that the earliest Christian communities saw themselves as belonging to one another (Romans 12:5), having all things in common (Acts 4:32) and were committed to each other (Romans 12:10). Christians are called to regularly gather together (Hebrews 10:23-25), to encourage one another (Hebrews 3:12-14), to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18-20), to protect each other from sin (James 5:19-20), to guard against hypocrisy (Matthew 18:15-18), and to be built up by the regular teaching of God’s Word (Hebrews 13:17).
To faithfully follow these commands, Rainier Valley Church has established church membership to encourage and hold believers accountable to live together as a family of Jesus-loving, Bible-believing, gospel-centered, Spirit-filled, multi-cultural, mission-minded people. Members foster deep, authentic, God-glorifying, sin-fighting relationships and forward the mission of making disciples who make disciples.
We would love to encourage you to become a member and join the family of God here at Rainier Valley Church.
