Commitment to God and Your Church
Commitment to God and your church brings freedom, that’s exactly how we see church membership at SOZO FULL GOSPEL. We expect our members to commit themselves to furthering the work and ministry of the church. This could include volunteering regularly in one of our programs or services, participating in outreach to the local community and abroad, tithing and giving regularly and cheerfully investing in other areas of need, lending your time, talent, and experience to benefit the church’s mission and vision.
