One of the first warning signs of a christian cult is when they won't let you see the membership forms until after you have been through their indoctrination process. Mclean Bible Church is no exception. While they have a wealth of information on their web site, and even a link to their main doctrinal paper, "WHAT WE TEACH", you will not find the official membership form anywhere. Even if you call the church directly anhd ask them to see it, you will be denied. You must attend their membership orientations (cultish for sure), then meet with an elder, and then and only then will you get to see the official membership form. But by then, I figure they reckon you already have been indoctrinated by them and any chilling info in the membership form might not seem so bad now. WOW! THis has got to be recipe numero uno for how to start a cult.

Ok, if your saying McLean is a cult, your saying about 75% of all churches are cults. Getting members is not the point of the church, it is to make followers of Christ and help Christians grow in their faith. No were in the bible does it say you have to be a member of a church. McLean doesn't require anyone who goes to their to become a member, nor do they ram it down your throats.

satanlivesinthedollarbill...Wh y do you say that McLean Bible church only loves rich people? Where does that come from? This is not true! Does JESUS love only rich people? People give because of what the BIBLE requires them to give. Again, this is everyones free choice. JESUS does not need the money...it is an act of obedience and by our obedience we are rewarded by our many blessings that we need. You give and you get back... pressed down and running over with blessings from our LORD! Give your tithe to McLean Bible church and see what the Lord will do for you by your obedience based on the word of GOD... THE BIBLE!!!
And Jake...Why is it so important to see the membership form? What reason would you want this for?
And jesussaves...What is wrong with Starbucks in the hallway of the church? It is not inside the church where we worship and pray!
Everyone should be careful of what we say against people of GOD...you are in judgement yourself!!!

Mclean Bible church gives away thousands of dinners to the needy at Thanksgiving. They do significat work in DC in needy areas. They do great work in the Coverstone community in Manassas. The church doesn't serve only the rich, they serve any who have needs. We are all poor, needy, and unworthy if we stop and think about it. Consider what "Rich" really means!!
