Covenant of Membership

A. Membership Agreement The following statement shall be signed and submitted to an elder to request membership at JEEVANT ASHA BIBLE CHURCH

Having been born again by the Spirit of God and drawn to faith and repentance in the Lord Jesus Christ, we now, relying on God’s grace, enter into covenant with one another as Christ’s body: Acts 2:47, Acts 9:19,26, Eph 1:23

We will seek to magnify the cross of Christ in all that we do, knowing that it is by the grace of God alone that our sins have been forgiven, our old nature put to death, and we have been raised to new life in Christ. Galatians 6:14, Philippians 3:1-3, Romans 6:1-4

We will show the joy of new life in Christ, by active participation in the life of the church, through hearing the Word of God and observing the Lord’s Supper, Baptism, by faithful attendance to worship and agreeing to Biblical church discipline all to the glory of God. Acts 2:42-47, Hebrews 10:25, 1 Peter 2:9-10, 1 Corinthians 10:31

We will strive to be faithful in the Word of God and prayer, studying the Scriptures privately and corporately, and praying for ourselves and others. Colossians 3:16, Philippians 4:6, 1 Peter 2:2 We will live our lives according to the Holy Scriptures, having submitted ourselves to God’s Word and embraced this church’s Statement of Faith as a trustworthy summary of biblical teaching. 2 Peter 1:19-21, 2 Thess 3:6, James 1:22

We will walk in a spirit of Christian love in the congregation, seeking the things that make for unity, purity, and peace. Ephesians 4:1-6, Phil 2:1-4, Titus 3:10-11, 1 Cor 5:1-13 We will exercise affectionate care and watchfulness over each other and faithfully admonish, hold accountable and urge one another as occasion may require. 1 Peter 1:22-23, Romans 15:14,

Galatians 6:2, James 5:19-20, 1 Thess 4:18, 1 Thess 5:14

We will use our spiritual gifts in God honouring ways to build up the body. Ephesians 4:13, 1 Cor 12:4-11 We will endeavour to bring up such as may at any time be under our care, in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and by a pure and loving example to seek the salvation of our family and friends. Ephesians 5:22-6:9, Colossians 4:5-6, Matthew 28:18-20

We will submit ourselves to divinely established authorities according to Christ’s biblical revelation, including the elders of the church, as those called to give watch over our souls. Romans 13:1-7, Hebrews 13:17

We will give cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel through all nations. 1 Timothy 5:17, Galatians 6:6, Galatians 2:10, Matthew 28:18-20, Matthew 6:19-21

We will, upon moving from this place, unite, if possible, with a church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word. Romans 16:1-2, Titus 3:13 May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God the Father, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all. Amen. 2 Cor 13:1
