If you wish to join Church of the Apostles in Coppell, Texas, we will gladly accept your decision to become part of our Christian community. More importantly, we will celebrate your desire to follow Jesus a Lord and Savior.
First, our Lord Jesus Christ commands his followers to join a church. In Matthew 16:18, Jesus tells his disciples, “I will build My church.” He pictures the church as the new covenant temple, and those who confess that Jesus is Lord are the building blocks in it (Matt. 16:16; 1 Pet. 2:5; Eph. 2:19-20).
In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus confirms his wish for his followers to make disciples, baptizing and teaching them. Fulfilling this Great Commission entails bringing converts into church membership. Why do we say that? Because part of the Great Commission is a command to baptize. Acts 2:41 tells how the apostolic church implemented this principle: “Those who gladly received his word were baptized, so on that day about three thousand souls were added to them.” Added to what? Acts 2:47 gives the answer: “added to the church.” This was the visible church; The apostles kept track of those baptized and even counted them.
