Can an individual member be liable for church debt if it defaults on its loans? Even if joining AFTER debt was incurred?

Considering membership, but concerned about debt load. Land assets are sufficient to cover debt (if they can be liquidated).

Unless membership requires that you personally sign a document accepting responsibility for loans to the church, you should be fine.
