The functions of the cell membrane are:

1.serves as a boundary between the outside environment and the inside of the cell.

2.gives form and shape to the cells.

3.connects one cell to two or more adjacent cell.

4.may serve as an organ locomotion like that of an amoeba, a protozoan which utilizes its membrane as pseudopia or false feet for movement.
There is a really good article here: en.wikipedia.org

The short answer is that the membrane tries to keep out things that shouldn't be in the cell and tries to keep things in that should be in the cell.
