The St. Paul Membership Covenant
“Having received Christ as my Lord and Savior and been baptized, and being in agreement with St. Paul’s statements, strategy and structure, I now feel led by the Holy Spirit to unite with the St. Paul church family. In doing so, I commit myself to God and to the other members to do the following:
I will protect the unity of my church

…By refusing to gossip
…By following the leaders
“Having a sincere love for your fellow believers; love one another earnestly with all your hearts.” I Peter 1:22
I will share the responsibility of my church
“Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be no advantage to you” Hebrews 13:17
…By praying for its growth
…By inviting the unchurched to attend
…By warmly welcoming those who visit
“So warmly welcome each other into the church, just as Christ has warmly welcomed you, then God will be glorified.” Romans 15:7 (LB)
I will serve the ministry of my church

…By being equipped to serve by my pastors
…By developing a servant’s heart
“Serve one another with the particular gifts God has given each of you.”
