When was the first church membership recorded and where?
Is church membership even Biblical?
no it is not scriptural. There is only one church all that are born again become members when they are born again.
It is a tool of the churches of men to bind those that will believe in it to themselves instead of CHRIST. It is an abomination.

The mass of the people are forced to believe into certain religions by ways of culture, traditions, family & now the media. I challenge you to ask yourself, are you truly practing your religion because of your true faith? Or is it because it's all you've ever known?
