Expectations of Members

  • Be baptized (if you have not already done so) in obedience to the command of Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38).
  • Demonstrate, through attitude and actions, a sincere desire to live in obedience to Christ (John 14:23) and submit to the spiritual authority and leadership of our pastor (Hebrews 13:17).
  • Regularly attend one of the Sunday morning worship services and our other services as scheduled.
  • Support the work of the church through your time, talents and treasure; giving of the tithe as commanded by the Lord or as you are able.
    • ​​Commit to spending time in worship and study. Since time is our most valuable commodity, when you sow your time in doing good, you will reap the good of your time.
    • Each member of the body of Christ has been given a spiritual gift (Ephesians 4:8) that is to be used in service and ministry. Learn yours and serve within your gift.
    • Jesus said it best, “where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). Follow giving patterns and you will find a person’s true heart.
