God is a covenant God. He commits Himself to His people, who in return are to commit themselves not only to Him, but one another. In a day of passive individualistic Christianity, God is calling us to be intentionally committed to one another as we pursue Him.
The “Membership Covenant” is a tool that helps us accomplish two important things. First, it helps us to identify those who have already trusted in Jesus and want to partner to represent Christ to the local community. Second, it outlines what we believe God expects from those who claim to be a Christian and allows us to stay accountable to one another for our responsibilities before God.
