LSC Member Covenant


Having received Christ as my Lord and Savior and being in agreement with the values and ideas presented in the Church 101 class, I now feel led by the Holy Spirit to unite with the Life and Salvation Church family. In doing so, I commit myself to God and to the other memmbers to do the following:


1. I will protect the unity of my church:

 By acting in love toward other members.

 By refusing to gossip.

 By following the leaders.

“So let us concentrate on the things which make for harmony, and on the growth of our fellowship together.” Romans 14:19 (Ph)

“Live in complete harmony with each other – each with the attitude of Christ toward each other.” Romans 15:5 (LB)

“Have a sincere love for other believers, love one another earnestly with all your heart.”
1 Peter 1:22 (GN)

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs.”
Ephesians 4:29

“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 of no advantage to you.” Hebrews 13:17


2. I will share the responsibility of my church:

 By praying for its growth.

 By inviting the unchurched to attend.

 By 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

“Go out into the country…and urge anyone you find to come in, so that the house will be full.” Luke 14:23 (LB)

“So, warmly welcome each other into the church, just as Christ has warmly welcomed you; then God will be glorified.” Romans 15:7 (LB)


3. I will serve the ministry of my church:

 By discovering my gifts and talents.

 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.” 1 Peter 4:10 (Ph)

“God gave…some to be pastors and teachers to prepare God’s people for works of ministry, so that the body of Christ may be built up.” Ephesians 4:11-12

“Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your at¬titude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus…by taking on the very nature of a servant.” Philippians 2:4-5, 7


4. I will support the testimony of my church:

 By attending church and small groups faithfully.

 By living a godly life.

 By giving regularly.

“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” Acts 2:42

“Let us not give up the habit of meeting together…but let us encourage one another.” Hebrews 10:25

“But whatever happens, make sure that your everyday life is worthy of the Gospel of Christ.” Philippians 1:27 (Ph)

“Each one of you, on the first day of each week, should set aside a specific sum of money in pro¬portion to what you have earned and use it for the offering.” 1 Corinthians 16:2

“A tenth of all you produce is the Lord’s, and it is holy.” Leviticus 27:30


Having been led by the Holy Spirit to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior and to make a profession of faith in Him, I do now sincerely and joyfully enter into this covenant with other believers in this body of Christ called Life and Salvation Church.

I further covenant to maintain personal devotions,  to seek the salvation of my family, friends and the lost. I will earnestly seek to live a life that incorporates and models the expectations of covenant membership.

When I leave this area, I will, as soon as possible, unite with some other church where I can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.
