Becoming a Member
Why Should I Become a Member of the River of Life Sanctuary Bandar Puteri?
Finding a faith community can be difficult, but when you find the right one, you know you are at home. Making a formal commitment to a faith community is an important step on a journey of faith.

Membership also brings you into a fellowship of other members – fellow pilgrims – who are on faith journeys of their own

If you have not known Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour or have not been water baptized, we welcome you and will gladly help you understand that God created you to love you and God has a purpose for your life.
Membership is all about involvement. The most important involvement in any church is worship – pleasing God. In worship, we pray, we sing, we hear the words of Holy Scripture, and we experience the presence of Christ in the Holy Communion and most of all we please Him. Making worship a regular part of life strengthens and renews us so that we can discover the life He created us to live – here on earth and forever in eternity.
We know that time is the great commodity of our world, but the only way to truly be a part of a faith community is to spend time within it. Time is God’s gift to us for life and love. How better to show our thankfulness for life and love than by giving back some of our time to God?
