BECOMING A MEMBER
 
Why join a church?
 
When we become followers of Christ,
God makes us part of his larger family.
As a family member, you receive privileges:
fellowship, inspiring worship, and spiritual growth.
God also asks you to be responsible:
by giving, serving, and participating in the 
life of a local church as well.
 
 
How do I become a member?
 
Please call our church office to meet with 
Pastor Michael to discuss your desire to become a member.  
Our members join by baptism or transfer of membership.
After meeting with Pastor Michael you will be presented
for membership during the Sunday morning Worship Service.
 
 
What does it mean to be a member of Mount Moriah?
 
We have professed faith in Jesus as our personal Savior and Lord. 
We have demonstrated this faith through baptism. 
We share a common dedication to Christ and His Kingdom.
We are committed to the precepts set forth in our Membership Covenant
and our Affirmation of Faith.  
 
 
 
OUR MEMBERSHIP COVENANT
 
 

Having received Christ as my Lord and Savior and been baptized, and being in agreement with Mount Moriah’s vision and structure, I now feel led by the Holy Spirit to unite with the Mount Moriah Church family.  In doing so, I commit myself to God and to the other members to do the following:

 

1.   I will protect the unity of my church by:

· acting in love toward other members

· praying for other members

· supporting the elected leadership

· refusing to gossip

· being slow to take offense and quick to reconcile

 

2.   I will share the responsibility of my church by:

· praying and working for its growth

· inviting the unchurched to attend

· warmly welcoming those who visit

· being involved in missions

· aiding one another in sickness and

distress

 

 3.   I will serve the ministry of my Church by:

· discovering and using my gifts and

talents

· being involved in Christian education

· developing a servant’s heart

· growing as a Christian disciple

 

4.   I will support the testimony of my church by:

· attending faithfully

· giving regularly

· living a Godly life

· keeping my body as the temple of God

nurturing a Christian home

 

 

5.   I will unite with another Christian church when I can no longer be active in Mount Moriah.
