Equipping Process

We are very intentional in equipping the saints here at MBT. The goal for every believer at MBT is to be equipped for the work that God has called you to. Below, you will see seven stages that have been developed as a road map for you. Determine where you fit and take the next step forward.

Membership

1 Corinthians 12:27 "Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular."


What is Church Membership?

Let’s see, attending a service and having your name on a list in some filing cabinet in the church office … Isn’t that exciting? Hardly. Biblical church membership is a whole lot more than that – God wants to use you to further His kingdom! Membership includes making a commitment to be a part of the body of Christ in a local assembly of believers. This means that whatever the body is doing, the different parts are all working together to accomplish it.

MBT is a Body of Believers

The word member means body part (1 Corinthians 12:27). When the various members of a body come together, all the members must be functioning together in the ways they were designed to function for the body to be whole and functional. The body needs its’ members and the members need their body. How well would your body function without its’ right arm? How well would your right arm function without your body? This is the picture God gives us to understand the local church and our roles in it. (1 Corinthians 12)

New Member’s Class

The New Member’s Class is offered several times a year and thoroughly reviews what it means to be a biblical church member. We also discuss what MBT is all about and opportunities to get equipped, edified and engaged.
