Living Water Church Covenant of Membership

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” --Matthew 28:18-20

Having been led by the Spirit of God to receive Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, and having been baptized as a public testimony of my new relationship with Him, I do now, in the presence of God and this assembly, pledge to enter into covenant with the body in Christ at Living Water Church of the Christian & Missionary Alliance,

  1. I pledge to pursue intimacy with God and to make the Word of God the standard by which I live in order to bring glory to God. (John 15:5; Colossians 2:6-7; James 1:22)
  2. I commit, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to intentionally practice Christian love, forgiveness and Christ-like living within the church, in my home, and in the community. (1 John 3:16-18; Colossians 3:12-13; Colossians 4:5-6)
  3. I solemnly commit to praying for and participating in the ministries offered at Living Water Church on a consistent basis. This includes regular attendance, but also a willingness to serve and use the gifts God has given me for the building up of the body of Christ. (Hebrews 10:24-25; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 1 Corinthians 14:12)
  4. I will regularly engage myself to cheerfully support and contribute to the ministry of Living Water Church through my resources of time, talent and treasure. (2 Corinthians 9:6-7; Hebrews 13:16; Galatians 6:9-10)
  5. Furthermore, I understand that if my actions are out of line with God's Word that I am subject to church discipline as outlined in the Scriptures. (Matthew 18:15-17; Galatians 6:1; 1 Corinthians 5:12-13)

As I sign this document, I hereby agree to submit myself to this Covenant of Membership,
