This session takes us to the next step of how one becomes a part of the church defined and identified from session 1. How does one become a member of the church the body of Christ? (the gospel).

This session delves into the truth that even though we can be members of the body of Christ and we gather with fellow members that we can either gather for the “better” or “worse”.
