Membership Agreement

PARK VALLEY CHURCH

MEMBERSHIP AGREEMENT

Having received Christ as my Lord and Savior and then having been biblically baptized by immersion, and being in agreement with the values and vision presented in the Membership 101 class, I now feel led by the Holy Spirit to unite with the Park Valley 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

  • By refusing to gossip

  • By following the leaders

“So then, let us aim for harmony in the church and try to build each other up.” Romans 14:19 (NLT)

“…live in complete harmony with each other – each with the attitude of Christ toward each other.” Romans 15:5 (TLB) “…have a sincere love for other believers, love one another earnestly with all your heart.” 1 Peter 1:22 (GNT)

“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 un-churched 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, so that the house will be full.” Luke 14:23 (TLB)

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

 

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 (PHILLIPS)

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

“…not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus…by taking the very nature of a servant…” Philippians 2:4-5, 7 (NIV) 

 

4. I will support the testimony of my church:

  • By attending church and 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 meeting together…but encouraging one another…” Hebrews 10:24-25

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

“On the first day of each week, you should each put aside a portion of the money you have earned…” 1 Corinthians 16:2 (NLT)

1. I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and I know that I am saved
2. I have been baptized the way the Bible says to be, by immersion, after I believed and was saved

(In order to become a member you must have been baptized by immersion after your salvation, either at Park Valley or at another church.)

I would like to schedule a time to be baptized.
3. I am in full agreement with the membership promise of Park Valley Church.
4. I wish to be a member of Park Valley Church.
