Why Church Membership

Does it really matter if I’m a member or not? Why do I have to take a class to become a member? Why do I have to sign anything? People often ask these questions about our membership process, skeptical as to why there seem to be so many “hoops” to jump through.

It’s true. We have a “high view” of church membership. Committing yourself to a body of believers is a serious responsibility. But it’s also wonderful and spiritually beneficial to you and everyone around you. When Covenant Members join, they commit to a spiritual family that provides encouragement and support. They are called to a biblical degree of responsibility, service, and sacrifice to their brothers and sisters. Our elders and leaders pledge to assist our Covenant Members with care, counsel, prayer, and teaching.
