This post is a discernment exercise from an EFCA Church in Idaho. Look over the membership application and ask yourself is this healthy? Is it Biblical? Is it cult-like? Would you get involved or should you stay away?
“Intelligence is something we are born with. Thinking is a skill that must be learned.”

“To live is to think.”
That very night the believers sent Paul and Silas to Berea. When they arrived there, they went to the Jewish synagogue. 11 And the people of Berea were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, and they listened eagerly to Paul’s message. They searched the Scriptures day after day to see if Paul and Silas were teaching the truth. 12 As a result, many Jews believed, as did many of the prominent Greek women and men.

This is a discernment post that comes from Ambassador Bible Fellowship in Merdian, Idaho. Ambassador is a part of the EFCA. On their website they have the membership application which you can access below. ABF-Membership-Application_Jul-2019-w_o-EFCA-SoF Ambassador Bible Fellowship is led by Thomas Herringshaw. Look over the application and ask yourself. Is this a healthy church? Is it cult-like? What theology do they have here? Is it legalistic? Or is is laid back? The point of these exercises is to get you to think for yourself. As always feel free to comment below.
