In this clip, Rob explains what real Biblical Church Membership looks like. God does not call us to merely attend church, just sitting in the pews, and listening. If all of us are serious about our spiritual walk, we will get involved. God is always at work! It is up to all of us, His children, to seek out a church where we can all join in! The Bible teaches us to be God’s hands and feet in our communities, so heed God’s Word! Become a member of a Bible believing church. Then, you can really take action in loving and serving the people around you in your community!

Church Attendance – NOT Biblical Church Membership

Rob starts out by listing what Biblical Church Membership does not look like. Specifically, he points out what it looks like when folks just attend worship services, and do not take His Word to heart. These church attenders do not listen to God’s voice calling them to contribute to His ministry.

Biblical Church Membership means worship, but not just in the sanctuaryBiblical Church Membership Looks Like This…


The Lord is not always interested in our ability. He is really looking for our availability. Sacrifice your time and talents as a volunteer in your local church on Sundays. When you serve others, you are following Christ’s example, as well as helping your church body carry out its community mission. These tasks will be different for different people. After all, the Bible tells us that God has called some to be Pastors, some Deacons, and so forth. Rob cited the example that his wife Claudia volunteers in the nursery, but caring for babies is not his forte. He often joins the prayer team before services to prepare for God’s blessings and pray for those who need them.

Tithing Your Treasure

Are you a Christian believer, but you don’t think giving a tenth of your income is important? Then you should definitely turn in your Bible to Malachi 3:9-10. God literally curses an entire nation for not tithing! Conversely, He promises He will bless all of his followers abundantly when they give of their income!

Biblical Church Membership Means Sharing Your Testimony and Building Relationships

Rob has a powerful testimony. God brought him up from life on the streets and drug addiction. Now, he is blessed with a beautiful family and successful business ventures, not to mention his physical health. Rob has been privileged to share his story and help his churchmates, opening up his home for meals and small group meetings. You never know who could benefit from hearing and seeing how God has changed your life. Who knows, building friendships with those in your congregation could bless you even more!

Deeper Study and Additional Attendance

Continuing the example of helping others in your church, Rob mentions seizing opportunities to get involved past weekly Sunday services. Rob leads a group of young businessmen in a Wednesday Bible Study. He and his students study God’s Word as they grow closer to Him and each other. Rob also attends the Celebrate Recovery events on Monday nights. While Rob speaks about his experiences in the past with drugs to encourage others, there are also a variety of other “hurts, habits, and hangups” attendees seek to overcome together.

Serving Others Outside the Church Walls

A church isn’t a building. It is rather a group of living, breathing humans called to love God and love others. That means moving beyond the church walls to serve others in the community. One opportunity Rob’s local church affords its parishioners is to feed and clothe the homeless every Tuesday. Jesus taught us that how we’ve treated “the least of these” is how we treat Him in this life. Each week, one to three individuals at these events surrenders and asks for help with drugs and alcohol addiction. The church serves them by paying for their rehabilitation. Many of the graduates go on to help with the church’s homeless relief program themselves.

Next, Rob describes in detail a ministry which he is very proud of. Three times each year, he organizes a group of volunteers to build houses in Mexico. On a chance visit south of the border, God impressed this mission Rob’s heart. The Lord led him to leverage his connections in order to assemble these groups for this mission opportunity. Thus far, the groups have blessed so many families who needed affordable housing.

Inviting Others To Share In Biblical Church Membership

Finally, Rob explains how a long season of prayer and an invitation led to a very special connection. His beloved sister now joins him for worship each Sunday. He shows photos of other friends and family who have joined in Biblical Church Membership with him. It may be uncomfortable to do so, but you will never regret inviting others to church. Your friends, coworkers, loved ones, and even enemies are all welcome to come and worship in God’s house!

Jay’s Story

Situational Awareness by the Holy Spirit

In this Gathering clip, Rob Rowsell took a break from his usual real estate and financial discussions in order to share about his Christian faith journey. Rob used a baseball diamond chart as an analogy for “rounding the bases” of spiritual maturity in Christ.

Serving in your local church is key to growing in your Christian Faith Journey.Christian Faith Journey as a Baseball Analogy

First Base is the start of the Christian faith journey. This is when you accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour of your life, and he cleanses you of all of your sins. While it may be the most important event in your walk, it is literally just the beginning!

As you round the rest of the bases, you are maturing. Second Base is your commitment to maturity. Studying your Bible and praying leads to a closer relationship with God. When you grow as a Christian through these steps, God sanctifies you and molds you into the image of His Son.

Heading to Third Base, you obey God and use the talents He blessed you with to serve in your local church. You will learn more about your gifts and where God wants you as you learn to hear His voice.

As we become head back to Home Plate, the end of our Christian faith journey, God wants us to become a Kingdom Builder. Jesus called us in the Great Commission to lead others to him and make them Disciples. At last, we assume the role of Missionary. This can be lived out overseas or right here in our own community.
