Our desire is for each member, regardless of age, to be growing and serving in ministry. Membership is not just "another ritual" in the church. We do not want you to join Micah 7 Ministries and gradually disappear. Why the emphasis on "active" membership? We believe people grow when they are serving God. Serving God in the church is a rewarding experience. Personal and spiritual growth is enhanced when we serve each other "as unto the Lord." Our mission is called to serve and we want everyone to be committed to the call. My prayer is that as you join hands with the body of Christ at Micah 7 Ministries and allow the Word of God to speak to your heart that we will all be transformed into the image of Christ.
Review the steps below to start the process of becoming a member of our church.
Micah PledgeI am an active member of our collective community and therefore committed to serving my sisters and brothers. I pledge to dedicate my life positively impacting people. I pledge to develop my mind, identify, cultivate and contribute my God given gifts, and my body to my community with a commitment to excellence I pledge to always have a teachable spirit and share what I have learned with my collective community as we fight for justice and equality for all. I pledge to honor my temple, recognizing my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within me which I have from God and that I am not my own. Physical abuse to my body makes me less capable of protecting myself, my family and my collective community. I will unselfishly share my knowledge and understanding with my collective community to assist with bringing about change most efficiently. I will exercise discipline knowing that in the moment it may seem painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. I pledge to never hurt or allow others to harm my brothers and sisters for I recognize every man, woman and child must be physically, mentally and psychologically strong to provoke change. These principles I pledge to practice daily and to teach them to others in order to unite my people
WHY BELONG TO A CHURCH
"You are... fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household..." Ephesians 2:19 (KJV)
What are the key dynamics about the church family?
The church is God's body. (1 Corinthians 12:12-27)
God expects you to be a member of a church family. (Roman 12: 4-5)
A Christian is born again into the family of God
A Christian without a church family is contradiction.
Micah 7 Ministries includes born again, baptized believers who congregate consistently for worship, fellowship and ministry.
"Not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near." Hebrews 10:25
