Covenant Membership

At Rocky Creek, we have a covenant membership.  It is a commitment to Jesus and to one another as the church.

Membership Covenant

God, by His grace alone, has led me to repent of my sin and believe upon Jesus Christ, trusting Him alone as my Savior and Lord. As one who has been baptized as a believer in Christ, I desire to unite with this church family. Therefore, I enter into a covenantal relationship with the members of this church. In humble reliance upon the Holy Spirit, I endeavor to do the following:

  • To faithfully attend the church’s worship services (Acts 2:42; Hebrews 10:25).

  • To diligently guard and grow in the Truth, upholding the standard of the Scriptures (1 Timothy 3:15, 6:3-4, 20; 2 Timothy 1:13-14, 2:14-15, 24-26, 4:3-4).

  • To wholeheartedly support loving, growing, and serving for the church’s ministries and members, offering:

  • My prayers (2 Corinthians 13:9; Ephesians 1:15-20, 3:14-21, 6:18; 1 Peter 1:22; Philippians 1:3-11; Colossians 1:3-12, 4:2-6;  1 Thessalonians 1:2-4, 5:17).

  • My financial gifts (Leviticus 27:30; Malachi 3:10; Matthew 23:23; 1 Corinthians 16:2; 2 Corinthians 9:6-7; 1 Timothy 5:17-18).

  • My service (Ephesians 4:11-16; Titus 2:11-14; Hebrews 10:24; Jude 17-21; 1 Peter 2:5-12, 4:10; 1 Corinthians 1:30-31, 12:4-11, 25-26; Ezekiel 36:23b).

  • To diligently promote the unity of the church, being a peacemaker with all in the body of Christ (Matthew 5:9, 23-26; Romans 12:18-21, 14:19; Ephesians 4:1-3; Philippians 2:1-4; Colossians 3:12-14; 2 Timothy 2:22; Hebrews 12:14).

  • To boldly witness for the Lord Jesus Christ, living a transformed life and sharing the Gospel as God provides opportunity (Matthew 4:19, 28:19; Acts 1:8, 5:42; 1 Peter 3:15).

  • To actively pursue personal holiness before God, loving others as Christ has loved us (2 Corinthians 7:1; 1 Thessalonians 4:7; 1 Peter 1:15-16; 1 John. 3:3; John 13:34-35).

  • To respectfully follow the leaders of this church, trusting and supporting their leadership (1 Thessalonians 5:12-13; 1 Timothy 5:17-20; Hebrews 13:7, 17).

  • To humbly submit to the church’s discipline, graciously repenting when approached about personal sin, and lovingly restoring others who become entangled in sin (Matthew 18:15-20; 1 Corinthians 5:6-13; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; Galatians 6:1; 1 Thessalonians. 5:14-15; 2 Thessalonians 3:5-6; Ephesians 4:29; Philippians 2:14).
