KCC Covenant of Membership

As a believer in Christ, whether a baptized adult or a believing child, I want to make a covenant with the rest of you at Kleefeld Christian Community,

This is what I covenant before God:

I will meet regularly with you. (Heb 10:25)

I will encourage you to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and urge you to live a life full of love and good deeds, more and more as Christ's return gets closer. (Mt 6:33; Heb 10:24-25)

I will offer myself to God, so He can use me to help you - spiritually, physically, and emotionally. (John 13:14-17; James 2:15-17; 1 John 3:17-18)

I will guard the unity of the Body, so I do not grieve the Holy Spirit. This means that I will speak to you and about you only in ways that will build you up. (Eph 4:3, 29-30)

Because God has forgiven me and keeps forgiving me, I will forgive you when you hurt or offend me. (Col 3:12-13)

I will pray for you, share your happiness and your tears. I will accept your help and your gifts with thankfulness, as wholeheartedly as I offer you my help and my gifts. (Eph 6:18; Rom 12:15; 1 Cor 14:26)

I will encourage you, help you, be patient with you, and work to do and say what is good for you. (1 Thess 5:14-15, 19-20)

Together with you I offer myself, my prayers, my tithes and offerings, and my service to God's work at the Kleefeld Christian Community. (Eph 6:18; Phil 2:3-4; 1 Cor 14:26; 16:1-2; 2 Cor 9:6-ll)

May the Lord make our love increase and overflow, for each other and for everyone else. (1 Thess 3:12)
