covenant membership

“Membership in the local church is a joyful privilege and responsibility granted to individuals who have demonstrated evidence of regeneration, who have made a confession of repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, and have been immersed by believer baptism.”  

Our church membership covenant affirms what Jesus has done for us by his own blood. It establishes the norms for how members will act as his followers in the local church. It holds members accountable to biblical discipleship and patterns of worship.
