    Why is it important to be a member?

    Did you know that it is virtually impossible to obey Jesus Christ and the commands of Scripture without committing to a local church? (Rom. 12, I Cor. 12) In addition, God has designed the Christian life for us to grow together as believers as we encourage one another. (Heb. 10:23-25) God has also designed the church to be a place of protection from the enemy and the many false teachings in our culture, through the means of godly leadership. (Acts 20:29-30, Heb. 13:17)

    What are the benefits of joining yourself to Sovereign Hope Church?

    1. Church Discipline – Sometimes “church discipline” gets a bad reputation. The Bible’s teaching on church discipline though helps us understand God’s intense love for His children. As a church, we want to help hold each other accountable to fighting sin by encouraging repentance and restoration when a member falls. (Matt. 18:15-20, Gal. 6:1-2, Heb. 12:6) 2. Discipleship – The fulfillment of the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20) involves making disciples. As a church, we seek to place our members into discipleship relationships with other members so that they can enjoy fellowship, encouragement and accountability as they learn to obey all that God has commanded. 3. Service Opportunities – There are many ways that you can serve at Sovereign Hope. We are always looking to equip our committed members to serve God with their talents and abilities within our church structure. 4. Specific Care –A defining characteristic of the early church was their intentional care for each other. (Acts 2:42-47) One of the great benefits of being a member of Sovereign Hope is the assurance that you will be loved and cared for specifically as different needs arise in your life.
