#9 - Authentic Engagement in the Body of Christ: Baptism, Membership, and Discipleship ft. John Neufeld

BCMB Pastor to Pastor Podcast

We had received both the benefits and the troubles that that pattern of community life would bring. You actually have to then teach about what the nature of body life is, you have to talk about what it means to be in Christ. Words like "koinonia" and "oikos" mean something. And to have spiritual gifts that are for the building of the body means something. And we actually had to biblically frame what membership meant. And so we started to do more of that, so that we could actually strengthen the discipleship process - moving people from baptism to wanting to actually be part of our covenant community membership. - John Neufeld How does your church deal with the interplay of membership and baptism? How does this method work in the greater framework of discipleship? Join Rob and his guest, John Neufeld, from The Meeting Place church in Manitoba, as they look at what baptism, membership, and discipleship  looks like in that church, and the challenges that they have faced along the way to their current framework. Topics covered: Membership and baptism, both tied and separated Discipleship Role of the Holy Spirit LGBTQ community engagement Heterosexuality and the church Hierarchy of sin and consequences
