Previous answers to questions like yours stated: “Membership in one of our churches is determined by your consultations with the pastor of the church. A person who has doubts or still has some reservations about a doctrine could be a member if that person was continuing to work with the pastor and in personal study to resolve that doubt, but such a person could not be a member if he or she was speaking against the doctrine in the church or making propaganda for opposing views. However, if you are convinced that our doctrine is wrong and unscriptural, you should not join the church because you would be sinning against your own conscience. This is a matter that you would have to discuss with the pastor of the church you are thinking about joining, both as to the substance of those doctrines and concerning your attitude toward them.”
