Why Submit to a Local Church?

Submitting to a local church:

  1. Identifies us with Christ.
  2. Distinguishes us from the world.
  3. Guides us into the righteousness of Christ by presenting a standard of personal and corporate righteousness.
  4. Acts as a witness to non-Christians.
  5. Glorifies God and enables us to enjoy his glory.
  6. Identifies us with Christ’s people.
  7. Assists us in living the Christian life through the accountability of brothers and sisters in the faith.
  8. Makes us responsible for specific believers.
  9. Protects us from the world, the flesh, and the Devil.

–Jonathan Leeman, The Church and the Surprising Offense of God’s Love (p. 267).
