The Sonrise Church Membership Covenant:
Having received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and been baptized, and being in agreement with the doctrinal statement, I feel led by the Holy Spirit to unite with the Sonrise Church family. In doing so, I commit myself to God and to my church family to do the following:
…By acting in love toward other believers.
…By refusing to gossip.
…By following the leaders.
“Have a sincere love for your fellow believers, love one another earnestly with all your hearts.” 1 Peter 1:22
“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of our 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 no advantage to you.” Hebrews 13:17
…By praying for its growth.
…By inviting the unchurched to attend.
…By warmly welcoming those who visit.
“To the church…we always thank God for you and pray for you constantly.”1 Thessalonians 1:2
“Go out into the country…and urge anyone you find to come in, so that My House will be full.” Luke 14:23
“So, warmly welcome each other into the church, just as Christ has warmly welcomed you; then God will be glorified.” Romans 15:7
…By discovering my gifts and talents.
…By being equipped to serve by my leaders.
…By developing a servant’s heart.
“Serve one another with the particular gifts God has given each of you…” 1 Peter 4:10
“God gave…some to be pastors and teachers to prepare God’s people for works of ministry…” Ephesians 4:11-12
“Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Jesus Christ…who took on the very nature of a servant…” Philippians 2:3-4, 7
…By attending faithfully.
…By living a godly life.
…By giving regularly.
“Let us not give up the habit of meeting together…but let us encourage one another.” Hebrews 10:25
“But whatever happens, make sure that your everyday life is worthy of the gospel of Christ.” Philippians 1:27
“Each one of you…should set aside a specific sum of money in proportion to what you have earned and use it for the offering.” 1 Corinthians 16:2
