“Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.”
~ 1 Cor. 12:27
By FAR the biggest mistake the American Church has made in the last 50 years has been ‘accepting members’ without asking anything of them”
~ Rev. Dr. Anne Hilborn
We may be a member at Barnes & Noble or Costco because we paid a fee and receive benefits. Partnership in the Body of Christ, however, means that we are submitting ourselves to the Lordship of Jesus Christ to be challenged and held accountable by a community of fellow believers. Rather than offering a membership that suggests status, at Waypoint you belong because you participate.
Therefore, some people would like to hold that participation loosely as we pass through this journey of life together. Others, however, may want to formally claim their partnership in mission with Waypoint. Either way, our mission will always be to equip you to live out your faith as God leads you.
As an equipping Church, our goal is to offer two different workshops that highlight God’s Story and Our Story and practically challenges us to consider what it is we believe, and how God may be using us in mission. You can attend these lunches to listen, to assess, or simply to enjoy the free food.
So we would like you to consider formally partnering with Waypoint Community Church in this mission by:
- Attending both luncheon workshops
- Sharing your faith story with another partner at Waypoint
- Identifying and using our A.P.E.S.T. Functions
- Being baptized or reconfirming your baptism during worship
