Global Harvest Fellowship Covenant of Membership
Having been brought, as I believe, by Divine Grace receive the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior; and having been baptized, upon the confession of faith, into the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, I do now most joyfully and solemnly enter into the covenant with another as one body in Christ.
I engage, therefore, as the Holy Spirit shall enable me, to walk together in brotherly love; to exercise Christian care and watchfulness over one another; to participate in another joy; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation; to consider one another to love and good works; and to forsake not the assembling of ourselves together.
I further engage to strive for the advancement of the Global Harvest Fellowship of Bayonne in grace, knowledge, and holiness; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to maintain the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace; to sustain its worship, ordinances, and doctrines, and to contribute cheerfully and liberally to the financial support of the ministries of the church, giving special attention to the ministries of world evangelization and care for the needy.
I further engage to maintain family and private devotions; to bring our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; and to avail myself of the great privilege of praying for one another and all men.
And I further engage to walk circumspectly and watchfully in the world, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts; to be just in my dealings; faithful in my engagements, and exemplary in my lifestyle; to refrain from gossip, backbiting and excessive anger, to abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as beverage, prohibited drugs, tobacco or any other substance that is detrimental to the testimony of the church; to maintain a clear line of separation from all religious apostasy and all worldly and sinful pleasures, practices, and associations and ever remembering my relationship to Jesus Christ my Lord, to live for His glory, knowing and acknowledging that the Lord Jesus Christ is the rightful Lord of all my life.
By His grace, Amen.
