I might not have this right in my thinking so feel free to correct me. Baptism.A person MUST be Saved to be baptized. Church Membership. A person must be saved and baptized to request membership. Now I beleive a person should have some fundamental knowledge before they become a church member.They should know what it really means to belong to a local New Testament Church.They should know what the church would expect from them as well as what to expect from the church and church family before being accepted as a member.My reason for thinking this way is to many are saved baptized and automacally made a member of a church and have no idea what that churrch membership truly entails.Now we have created a possible church hopper until properly indoctrinated.What do you think?
