Publisher's Description

Thom S. Rainer, autor de éxitos editoriales y líder ministerial, motivó una excepcional respuesta cuando publicó en su blog diario una declaración de 500 palabras sobre la experiencia de pertenecer a una iglesia.La publicación titulada "Soy miembro de la iglesia" inició un intercambio sobre las actitudes y responsabilidades de los miembros (en lugar de las cuestiones funcionales y teológicas) que habían pasado por alto los libros anteriores destinados a la iniciación de miembros en las iglesias.

 
Soy miembro de la iglesia, una ponencia ampliada elaboradamente en formato de libro, comienza a reparar la ola de miembros inactivos o insuficientemente comprometidos con sus iglesias, abordando sin excusas lo que se espera de aquellos que se suman a un cuerpo de creyentes. Cuando la actitud de una persona es constantemente bíblica y saludable, los detalles relacionados con dar, servir, etc., comienzan a encontrar su lugar naturalmente.
 
Presenta seis capítulos enfocados con preguntas de estudio para guiar esta creciente conversación:
 
1. Seré un miembro de la iglesia comprometido con la unidad
2. No dejaré que mis preferencias y deseos controlen mi relación con la iglesia
3. Oraré por los líderes de mi iglesia
4. Guiaré a mis familiares a integrarse de una manera sana como miembros de la iglesia
5. Seré un miembro útil de la iglesia
6. Apreciaré como un tesoro la experiencia de pertenecer a la iglesia
 
 
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

Editorial Reviews

Thom Rainer has written more in behalf of the local church than any scholar I know. I Am A Church Member is a stellar example of such monographs, the perfect introduction for anyone serious about pleasing Jesus through responsible church membership. Fun, perceptive, challenging, and steeped in Scripture, I sincerely wish that every evangelical churchman would read-- and then practice this book. 

 
Paige Patterson
President, Southwestern Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas 
 
I am a Church Member is a great resource for both church leaders and church members. In a world obsessed with consumerism Dr. Rainer shows that, as a biblical church member, I am called to a greater commitment. I recommend that any church that takes belonging seriously consider giving a copy to every member.
 
Geoff Surratt
Managing Director, Exponential
 
As a church member I have the privilege to unite with the body of Christ in making an eternal difference through my giftedness in His service. Church membership is an honor, privilege, and joy. Where would I be without the fellowship, encouragement, and edifying of the church? I am so thankful to Thom Rainer for making that reality come alive in this book!
 
Johnny Hunt
Pastor, First Baptist Church of Woodstock, Georgia
 
So much ink has been spilled to critique the church that it has almost become sport. Yet, I am confined that you cannot love Jesus and despise His wife, the Bride of Christ. Here, Thom Rainer offers a positive vision of healthy church membership and deep value for the Bride of Christ. There's a deficit of books like the one in your hands, a rare treasure for a generation deeply in need of a compelling vision for this community called church."
 
Ed Stetzer
President of LifeWay Research
 
Church membership is the shape of Christian discipleship. Wise, simple and sweet, practical and even piercing--this brief volume, if read and digested, helps us to follow Christ. It comes complete with questions to be considered and pledges to be made. Thom Rainer has written a book to instruct new members and to remind long-time members that true discipleship may sometimes be heroic; it must always be humble."

Senior Pastor, The Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC

According to Thom Rainer, Church membership doesn’t simply have privileges, it isa privilege. And I couldn’t agree more. In I Am A Church Member Thom delivers a biblical perspective and practical approach to church membership. This little book is both refreshing and inspirational. I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend you pick it up!

One of the great privileges of my life is to pastor a local congregation of saints. Over the last decade I have seen first hand the fruits of those who understand the content of this book and don't just go to a church but belong to one. Dr. Rainer has served us all well in this book. He has wrung from the scriptures God's commands concerning the fullness of life found in Christ among his people in covenant faithfulness. If you love your church, are frustrated with your church, or don't understand why membership matters, I encourage you to pick this book up and read it.
 
Matt Chandler
Edler, The Village Church
 
For many years, the Lord has used Thom Rainer to encourage and challenge church leaders to be evangelistic, raise expectations, design a discipleship process, reach millenials, etc. And the Church has benefited. Now, the Lord will use this helpful book to encourage church members to discover or rediscover the privilege and responsibility of belonging to a local church. And the Church will benefit.
 
Eric Geiger
Vice President, LifeWay Church Resources Division
 
There are scores of books on what it means to be a good pastor of a church. The same cannot be said for books on what it means to be a good member of a church. Thom Rainer helps cure the latter malady in this brief work that is biblical, simple and practical. This book is an easy read. It is also a convicting read. And, it is greatly needed when so many who attend church have a "what can I get" mentality rather than a "what can I give" mindset. This book will serve the body of Christ well.
 
Daniel L. Akin
President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
 
Thom Rainer, with this incredibly valuable little book, has once again demonstrated why he is considered a leader among church leaders. Though small in size, this insightful resource has the potential to bring about big results, helping to guide individuals and churches toward much-needed changes in how we all think about what is really involved in becoming a faithful church member. These thoughtful reflections, together with the illuminating and applicable responses, will serve as trustworthy steps toward health, renewal, and revitalization for congregations of all sizes.
 
David S. Dockery
President, Union University
 
Thom Rainer has created a profound and practical resource to help two generations of Christians - those who have become too comfortable and even apathetic in the church and those of my generation who are inclined to abandon it altogether. For those, like me, who have grown up in the church this is a pointed and necessary reminder of what it means to be a church member, and for those who are new to church it is a concise primer on the joy and life found in committing to a local church. I highly recommend this deep but uncomplicated book to any believer.

Thomas Rainer has tapped into a significant challenge in today’s church that is experiencing a decline in church attendance and membership. I Am a Church Member focuses on the priority that all followers of Jesus Christ should emphasize and that is to serve Him by serving others based on the Biblical instruction set forth in Scripture. "Now [we] are the body of Christ and individual members of it" (1 Corinthians 12:27). Thom has masterfully outlined how we should function within the context of the apostles’ teaching and gives us pause to consider just how we should relate to others within the local church—Christ’s words are to individuals that collectively make up the body of Christ. His work takes root in each individual heart.

The Church is the only bride of Christ. The Church is the only plan of God to reach the world and it is the only organization that will last forever!
 
The Church (with a Big C) is only as strong as its local churches around the world. 
In a day of church decline and stagnation, it appears as if the church of today looks nothing like the church of the Bible.
 
I believe when church members around the world get a clear picture of what the Bible has to say about their relationship with their church--it will change the world!
Thom Rainer has done it again. He has written a book that will advance the Church and therefore advance the Kingdom of God.
 
It is a must read for all church members everywhere.

Timely. Needed. Powerful. Simple. Clear. Biblical. This book needs to be read by every Pastor and church member globally. Find a way to get it to every Christ-follower. I will do all I can to do it in my church. Thank you for calling us back to the Bible!
 
Dr. Ronnie Floyd
Senior Pastor, Cross Church, Northwest Arkansas
