Membership is a covenant that enables us to partner together in more significant ways.
The word covenant means in it together. In a covenant, two parties enter into an agreement that establishes and defines the nature of the relationship.
God is a covenant maker and keeper. Covenants are to His people as roots are to trees. Entering into a covenant with a specific group of believers promotes accountability, fosters life-giving relationships, and encourages personal investment.
In addition to these inherent benefits of covenant relationships, becoming a member equips you with a both a voice and a vote when it comes to decisions that affect our church family.
