The Covenant of Membership

Realizing my guilt before God, I have confessed and renounced my sin before him and received the Lord Jesus Christ, who bore my sins on the cross, as my personal Saviour (Romans 3:19, 23; 5:8; 1 Peter 2:24 & John 1:12).

I acknowledge the Lord Jesus as Lord of my life and seek to confess him before others (Romans 10:9).

I trust in the power of the Holy Spirit, who lives in me, to keep me and lead me in the way of holiness and love in all the relationships of life (John 14:26;16:13; Romans 8:2; Galatians 5:22-23).

I accept the Bible as the inspired Word of God and as my final authority in all matters of faith and conduct (2 Timothy 3:16).

I recognize my responsibility to make diligent use of the means of grace, and to be regular in my attendance at the services of the church and at the Lord’s Table (1 Thess.5:17; 1 Peter 2:2; 2 Peter 3:18; Hebrews 10:25 & 1 Cor. 11:26).

I acknowledge my brothers and sisters in Christ in this place as my God-given family and commit myself to live in meaningful fellowship with them (Romans
12:4-5, 9-13; Acts 2:42).

I recognize my responsibility to pray regularly for the work of this church, for its ministers, officers and members (Ephesians 6:18-19).

I recognize my financial responsibility to participate in the worship and witness of the church by systematic giving as the Lord may prosper me ( 1 Cor. 16:1-3; 2 Cor. 9:7).

I recognize my responsibility by all means to serve the Lord through his church and to extend his kingdom here and throughout the world (Matt 28:18-20; Rom 12:6-13; Luke 12:4).

Conscious that in my own strength I cannot please God, I now, in complete dependence on Divine Grace, accept and affirm this Covenant.

“I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.”
(Phil. 4:13)
