Responsibility is a duty or task you are required or expected to do or something that you should do because it is your ethically right. If you have ever wondered what your responsibilities are as a faithful member of your church, I encourage you to read below.
Here are 10 Responsibilities of every Church Member
1.Attend Church Regularly
It is the imperative duty of every church member to attend church on regular basis. Not only on Sundays but also on weekdays services. It is also very important to wait until the service comes to an end before you disappear to your house. We also encourage our pastors not to waste much time.
And let us be concerned about one another in order to promote love and good works, not staying away from our worship meetings, as some habitually do, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day drawing near. (Heb. 10:24–25)
2. Pray for your pastor and the church leadership
Finally, dear brothers and sisters. We ask you to pray for us. Pray that the Lord’s message will spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes. Just as when it came to you.
Pray, too, that we will be rescued from the wicked and evil people, for not everyone is a believer. But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you
3.Attend Membership Meetings.
Almost in every church, there are meeting days for the youth ministry, women’s fellowship, men’s fellowship, singing ministry and so on. We as church members, it is our core responsibility to attend membership meetings for our own spiritual growth.
4.To share the gospel with outsiders and draw them to church.
Apostel Bernard Kumi said “The responsibility of the pastor is to equip us the church members and it’s, therefore, our prime responsibility to share the gospel and draw new members to Christ.
5. It is our responsibility to follow up with non-active members.
Sometimes we presume that these are the responsibility of the pastor or his leadership but it is our responsibility as church members to visit those who are non-active in the church and find out their reasons and report to the pastor or his leadership.
6.To support the children’s ministry.
The children’s ministry is one of the most important ministries in the church yet many churches pay less attention to them.
Some children’s ministry does not have qualified teachers, we the church members can take responsibility and impart into the young once. We can also sponsor their feeding every Sunday.
7.To help others when they are in need.
“I don’t want to live in the kind of world where we don’t look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I can’t change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit.” ― Charles de Lint
8.To Contribute to the benevolent of the Church.
Honor the Lord with thy substance and with the firstfruits of all thine increase. Proverbs 3:9. Everybody wants prosperity but only a few are willing to give.
9.To support the church.
Every church member should consider the church as his own home. In most of the churches, I have observed, the elderly women immaculate the church auditorium, there is nothing wrong with that but my question is that: where are the youth?
Gone are the days where the uneducated people always serve in the church. I have personally seen a medical doctor as a church usher and some bankers who clean the church.
But among you, it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant. (Mark 10:43)
10.Accountability to the church.
Being a church member means being willing to live by the beliefs of the church. This means abiding by the church’s constitution and by-laws.
We cannot be in a church and do whatever we like. It is our responsibility to obey our church rules and regulations and to respect church authority.
Don’t just go to church, close and go home without performing your responsibility as a member of the church.
