Committing to Membership is a Life Changing Decision.
On the Sunday you join you will stand before the congregation and be asked to make these vows:
Who is your Lord and Savior? – Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. Do you trust him? – I do. Do you intend to be his disciple, to obey his Word, and to show his love? – I do. Will you be a faithful member of this congregation, giving of yourself in every way, and will you seek the fellowship of the church wherever you may be? –I will.
Living out these vows looks like this
- I will protect the unity of my church by … acting in love toward other members … refusing to gossip … following the leaders
- I will share in the responsibility of my church by … praying for its growth … inviting the “unchurched” to attend … warmly welcoming those who visit
- I will serve the ministry of by church by … discovering my gifts and talents … being equipped to serve by my pastors and church leaders … developing a servant’s heart … serving where God leads
- I will support the testimony of my church by … attending faithfully … developing Christian behaviors … giving regularly
