Membership Covenant

I have experienced the love and forgiveness of God offered through Jesus and have committed myself to following Him. Being in agreement with the vision and mission of New Hope Church I now commit myself to unite with the New Hope Church family.*  In doing so, I commit myself to God and to the other members. With the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us,


I promise to protect the unity of my church by acting in love toward other members, refusing to complain, find fault, or gossip and by following the leaders that God gives to this church.


I promise to assist my church by praying for its growth, inviting others to attend, and welcoming those who visit.


I promise to serve my church by discovering the gifts God has given me and using them to serve Him as He leads me.


I promise to support my church by attending faithfully, giving regularly, cultivating Christ-centered relationships, and living a life of honesty and integrity with those inside and outside the church.


I promise to seek to be receptive to God’s grace by engaging in daily Bible reading and prayer.




*  I have received Jesus Christ, God’s Son, as my Lord and Savior and am seeking to live a life that is pleasing to him. I believe that New Hope Church is my part of the “body of Christ” to which God is presently calling me to be connected. I sense that I am in agreement with its vision, values, and beliefs.
