NEW LIFE IN CHRIST track
New Life in Christ (NLIC) is the first discipleship resource book that is used in the Christian Formation Process of SCC. Every disciple starts with this track in helping them develop a devotional lifestyle and strengtehn their foundations in Christ.
After completion of this important course, one can now register for the FAMILY UNLIMITED course, which is a commitment to become a member of Sheffield Community Church. There are two aspects to Church membership in the Book of Acts. You do not become a member by signing up, taking a pledge or subscribing to a particular set of doctrines. In the Early Church, you had to be added to the Lord, which involved a spiritual experience of coming into right relationship with and under the lordship of Jesus Christ as personal Savior (Acts 5:14; 11:24). This spiritual membership is the foundation for all other experiences with God.
There must also be a visible and practical expression of Church membership as seen in the Book of Acts. This is seen in belonging to “the church local.” Believers that were added to the Lord were also added to the local church (Acts 2:41, 47). So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved (Acts 2:46-47).
