All prospective members will be required to go through a new members orientation prior to joining Christ Covenant Church as members.
Joining a church requires a commitment. It also requires agreement. To join Christ Covenant Church, you must be able to answer the following five questions of membership (or "membership vows") as set forth in our denomination's Book of Church Order:
1. Do you acknowledge yourselves to be sinners in the sight of God, justly deserving His displeasure, and without hope save [except] in His sovereign mercy?
2. Do you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and Savior of sinners, and do you receive and rest upon Him alone for salvation as He is offered in the Gospel?
3. Do you now resolve and promise, in humble reliance upon the grace of the Holy Spirit, that you will endeavor to live as becomes the followers of Christ?
4. Do you promise to support the church in its worship and work to the best of your ability?
5. Do you submit yourselves to the government and discipline of the church, and promise to study its purity and peace?
