This project sought to teach biblical church membership for increasingly
healthy church life at Reformation Baptist Church (RBC) in Wetumpka, Alabama.
Chapter 1 introduces the ministry context of RBC and provides an overview of the
project’s rationale and purpose followed by specific directions for achieving its goals.
Chapter 2 provides exegesis of four passages of Scripture (Matt 16:13-20 and
18:15-20; selected passages in the Pastoral epistles, Eph 4:1-16; Heb 10:19-25) asserting
that biblical ecclesiology and practice are essential for healthy Christian disciple-making.
This chapter establishes the biblical foundation of a biblically-ordered church along with
the responsibilities of its members and leaders.
Chapter 3 establishes an overview of basic ecclesiology and common
challenges to church membership.
Chapter 4 specifies the implementation of the project with its curriculum and
Chapter 5 evaluates the efficacy of the project based on completion of the
specified goals with reflections on its implementation and considerations for future
Ultimately, this project seeks to exhibit the glory of God through the local
church, and shepherd Christians toward Christ-likeness through biblical church
