Welcome to The Religious Instructor Website !!! Teaching the way of Jesus Christ (John 14:6). Please study God's Word with open minds and open Bibles (Acts 17:11). Truth has nothing to fear from open and honest investigation. God's Word is where we will find the truth (John 17:17).  
shepherd with his flock of sheep

Placing membership in a local church….Part 1

What is local church membership? Is it necessary? What is the relationship of the elders of a local church to the “flock” which is “among them”?

Please consider the following audio lesson on this important topic. Thanks! – mjw
