Publisher's Description

Best-selling author and ministry leader Thom S. Rainer drew an exceptional response when he posted a 500-word declaration about church membership to his daily blog. "I Am a Church Member" started a conversation about the attitudes and responsibilities of church members -- rather than the functional and theological issues -- that previous new member primers all but ignored.


Thoughtfully expanded to book form, I Am a Church Member begins to remedy the outbreak of inactive or barely committed church members, addressing without apology what is expected of those who join a body of believers. When a person's attitude is consistently biblical and healthy, matters of giving, serving, and so forth will fall into place more naturally.

Six intentional chapters with study questions guide this rising discussion:

1. I Will Be a Unifying Church Member
2. I Will Not Let the Church Be About My Preferences and Desires
3. I Will Pray for My Church Leaders
4. I Will Lead My Family to Be Healthy Church Members
5. I Will Be a Functioning Member
6. I Will Treasure Church Membership as a Gift

    We are using this book along with a few other pieces of literature to train our new members and existing members about what it means to be a functioning member of the body of Christ.

    This year the church has made a commitment to read one or two books together as a church. I have been looking for the past 3 months for a book to suggest. Today I found it in Thom's Book on church members. I bought it online and read it within just minutes. It is so what we need. I suggest that everyone get a copy and read it.

    I got this book at a church in Vermont, I could not put it down once I started reading it. I found it to be very helpful to learn how better to serve my church. It helped me very much to get through some things I was dealing with at this very moment in my church. I am ordering one for my pastor and my husband, because I want to keep my copy to read over and over again when I start feeling to important, or selfish, or complaining about my brothers and sisters in my church.

    Thank You, Thom Rainer for a well needed book!!!

    This little book has the potential for major impact in every church where it is read and applied. As I completed each chapter, I thought, "This is just what we need to give to everyone who becomes a member in our church." A must-read for every Christian who wants to please God with their life. I am going to propose to our leadership that our church adopt a covenant containing the principles which appear at the conclusion of each chapter.
