BECOME A COVENANT PARTNER

WHAT IS MEANS TO BE A PARTNER

Commitment

The difference between “attenders” and “partners” can be summed up in one word…         

At The City, our Partners are our Members. We recognize the need for a formal membership and we ask you to make this committment for four reasons:

  1. BIBLICAL REASONChrist is Committed to the Church

    • We live in an age where very few want to be committed to anything...a job...a marriage...our country. This attitude has even produced a generation of church shoppers and hoppers. Membership swims against the current of America’s consumer religion. It is an unselfish decision. Commitment always builds character.

    • Every team must have a roster. Every school must have an enrollment. Every business has a payroll. Every army has an enlistment. Even our country takes a census and requires voter registration. Membership identifies our family. 

    • The New Testament places a major emphasis on the need for Christians to be accountable to each other for spiritual growth. You cannot be accountable when you’re not committed to any specific church family. 

  2. CULTURAL REASONIt is an antidote to our society

  3. PRACTICAL REASON It defines who can be counted on

  4. PERSONAL REASON It produces spiritual growth

WHAT IS EXPECTED OF ME AS A

Member

At The City, we never ask our members to do more than the Bible clearly teaches.  We only expect our members to do what the Bible expects every Christian to do.  These responsibilities are spelled out in the Membership Covenant.
