Coppell Bible Membership

One of the essential building blocks of spiritual growth is to become a part of a local church. The Church, meaning the entire body of Christians, was established by Christ to provide you with biblically sound instruction, allow you to express genuine worship with other believers, enable you to use your God-given gifts and abilities as He intended, and keep you accountable to spiritual leadership.

At Coppell Bible, we recognize the need for a formal membership. The New Testament knows nothing of a “lone ranger” Christian. Instead, it places a major emphasis on the need for Christians to be accountable to each other and in relationships with others where spiritual growth can be fostered. You cannot be accountable when you’re not committed to any specific church family. See Hebrews 10:23-25Galatians 5:13 and 1 Thessalonians 5:11.

A member of Coppell Bible is someone who has personally trusted Jesus Christ as Savior, who is functionally and relationally involved, who agrees with our Statement of Faith and Statement of Purpose, and has made a formal declaration of membership through a committment to the Membership Covenant.

Common Questions

Why do you have formal membership?

Every team must have a roster. Every school must have an enrollment. Membership identifies our church family. It is an unselfish decision, where your commitment benefits the church by the addition of your unique talents, strengths and abilities. See 1 Peter 4:10 and 1 Corinthians 12:14-22.

Why is membership important at Coppell Bible?

The main difference between “attenders” and “members” at Coppell Bible comes down to one word: commitment. Members of Coppell Bible are not just names in a database; they are the core of our church! Members are committed to becoming authentic followers of Christ and to being an active part of church life here at CB. As in Acts 2:42, members here are devoted “to fellowship,” devoted to a specific local body.

What do you mean by "functionally and relationally involved?"

Functional involvement means getting involved in the ministries of our church; such as Life Groups, Bible Study Classes, and Serving Opportunties. Relational involvement means establishing relationships with other church members. We want you to know us and we want you to be known. In short, we want you to feel this is your church home.

What do you mean by "formal declaration of membership?"

A formal declaration of membership is made by meeting with the senior pastor or another CB Elder and communicating your desire for membership and your commitment to the doctrine and goals of CB. The pastor will then inform the Elder Board and the church on your behalf. This commitment is to the other members of CB and will be demonstrated by your involvement with them.
