    With all due respect, these reasons make perfect sense to those who are already members of a church, but I wonder how convincing they will be to those who desire to sit on the sidelines. In any case, just about everything mentioned in the 6 reasons is available to the non-member in most churches. For example, you can usually be part of a small group and join in ministry activities without formally joining a church.
    I believe the most compelling reason to join a church (almost identified in #1) is the need for a personal and public confession of faith which usually happens at the time one joins the church. Romans 10: 9,10 gives the most persuasive reason for joining a church.
