Did you know? 9 out of 10 churches in America are declining or growing at a pace that is slower than that of their communities. The Millennials – 80 million strong – are the largest generation in Ameria's history. However, only 15% of Millennials are Christians.

Bestselling author and ministry leader Thom S. Rainer drew an exceptional response when he posted a 500-word declaration about church membership to his daily blog. "I Am a Church Member" started a conversation about the attitudes and responsibilities of church members - rather than the functional and theological issues - that previous new member primers all but ignored.

Thoughtfully expanded to book form, I Am a Church Member: Discovering the Attitude that Makes the Difference begins to remedy the outbreak of inactive or barely committed church members, addressing without apology what is expected of those who join a body of believers. When a person's attitude is consistently biblical and healthy, matters of giving, serving,and so forth will fall into place more naturally.

Six intentional chapters with study questions guide this rising discussion:

  • I Will Be a Unifying Church Member
  • I Will Not Let the Church Be About My Preferences and Desires
  • I Will Pray for My Church Leaders
  • I Will Lead My Family to Be Healthy Church Members
  • I Will Be a Functioning Member
  • I Will Treasure Church Membership as a Gift

People are Saying:

“If you love your church, are frustrated with your church, or don’t understand why membership matters, I encourage you to pick this book up and read it.”
- Matt Chandler – Lead Pastor, Teaching, The Village Church

“According to Thom Rainer, Church membership doesn’t simply have privileges; it is a privilege. And I couldn’t agree more. In I Am a Church Member, Thom delivers a biblical perspective and practical approach to church membership. This little book is both refreshing and inspirational. I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend you pick it up!”
- Andy Stanley - North Point Ministries

“Following Jesus involves far more than believing; it involves BELONGING. Only as we belong to Christ’s Body can we become what He intends us to be. In fact, it is impossible to grow to spiritual maturity by yourself. You must be connected to the other parts of the Body. This wonderful little book explains the power of belonging to a church family.”
- Rick Warren - Pastor, Saddleback Church
