Church Membership

The primary truth about our church membership is not that we are
members of a particular congregation, but that we have been born into
this new race of human beings, the Christian race, which is made up of
people out of every nation and tribe and class. Further, each local
church is a church only in so far as it is the expression, in a
particular place, of this new race that has come into the world
through Christ Jesus. It is the mighty acts of God in Him that are the
guarantee of our fellowship in the Church.
… Ambrose Reeves (1899-1980), Bishop of Johannesburg [1956]
