LIVING HOPE CHURCH MEMBERSHIP COVENANT
Having received Christ as my Lord and Savior and being in agreement with the values and ideas presented by Living Hope, I now feel led by the Holy Spirit to unite with the Living Hope Church family. In doing so, I make the following commitment to God and my fellow church members:
1. I will protect the unity of my church by:
- Acting in love toward other members
- Refusing to gossip
- Following the leaders
“So then, let us aim for harmony in the church and try to build each other up.”
Romans 14:19 NLT
“May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus.”
Romans 15:5 NLT
“Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, form the heart.”
1 Peter 1:22 NIV
“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs.”
“Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority, because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account. Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no benefit to you.”
- Praying for its growth and health.
- Inviting the unchurched to attend.
- Warmly welcoming those who visit.
“To the church… we always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers.” 1 Thessalonians 1:1-2

“So, warmly welcome each other into the church, just as Christ has warmly welcomed you; then God will be glorified.” Romans 15:7 TLB
- Discovering my gifts and talents.
- Using my God-given gifts to make a difference in the lives of others.
- Developing a servant’s heart.
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10 NIV
“So Christ Himself gave… pastors and teachers, to equip His people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.” Ephesians 4:11-12
“Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus… taking the form of a bondservant…” Philippians 2:4-5 NKJV
4. I will support the testimony of my church by:
- Attending church and small groups faithfully.
- Living a godly life.
- Giving regularly.
