I know the celestial criteria measure service, not stat

I know the celestial criteria measure service, not status; the use of our talents, not the relative size of our talent inventories. I know that Church membership is not passive security but continuing opportunity.
Neal A. Maxwell
We must re-grasp the idea of church membership as being the membership of the body of Christ and as the biggest honour which can come man’s way in this world.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones
I encourage you to seek the help of the Savior to resist temptation and to refrain from behavior that would cause you to have to repent or to have your Church membership called into question.
Dallin H. Oaks
The aim of the Church is to help the people to help themselves. Work is to be re-enthroned as the ruling principle of the lives of our Church membership
Heber J. Grant
Healthy church membership means you find your joy in being last, instead of seeking your way and being first.
Thom S. Rainer
A church has no right to make anything a condition of membership, which Christ has not made a condition of salvation.
Archibald Alexander Hodge
To attempt to pay for salvation with church membership, prayers, or good deeds is an insult to Christ, who paid the full price-and is a rejection of the gift of God’s grace.
Dave Hunt
So if we approach church membership from the perspective of entitlement, we have it upside down. You always ask first what you can do for your church.
Thom S. Rainer
For a Christian to be a Christian, he must first be a sinner. Being a sinner is a prerequisite for being a church member. The Christian church is one of the few organizations in the world that requires a public acknowledgement of sin as a condition for membership.
R. C. Sproul
Christianity means a lot more than church membership.
Billy Sunday
