If you are a believer in Christ, you are then a member of the universal church. So why would you seek to become a member of a local church? Is local church membership even biblical? In this episode, John and Caleb discuss the merits of joining a local church and why it is a spiritual benefit to believers. 
Outline (From Mark Dever’s Book Why Should I Join a Church?)
Church membership: 

Displays the gospel 
Is required by the Bible
Provides a way to love one another
Empowers evangelism 
Brings assurance of salvation to yourself and to others
Exposes false gospels 
Glorifies God
