Your choice to make a commitment to Christ by uniting with His church is just a part of your  relationship with Him.  Your membership has many privileges and opportunities, as well as obligations. In order for you to understand all about your church membership at Cedar Grove, you must understand the principles we believe in. You must also understand God’s purpose for the church.  Being a member of the church that Jesus Christ is coming back for

requires that you do more than attend Sunday services.  It requires that you go beyond being a morally upright individual.  It requires that you commit your life to Jesus Christ and submit yourself to His will concerning your life. 
We are a church on the move–one that God has promised will be used to accomplish great things.  You have joined this church, and we welcome you into our vineyard, for there is much work to be done.

It is my prayer that you will utilize your church membership and your relationship with Christ for the full purpose for which it was meant.  As you walk this spiritual journey, may you gain full insight and knowledge concerning God’s will for your life.  May God get the glory for the efforts of this booklet as well as for the members who use it.

God bless you,                                 

Prophetess V. B. Smith, Pastor
