MEMBERSHIP CONFESSION

 
 

I belong hereAnd God says that believers belong together (Hebrews 10:23-25).

 I sense that God wants me here with the people of Harvest Bible Chapel at this time in my walk with Christ, and I want to make a public declaration that I am committed to God’s work through this church.


I affirm, believe and support the teaching of this church. And God says the believers had all things in common including devotion to the Apostles’ teaching (Acts 2:42-47)

I desire to associate with people of like mind and conviction and embrace the authority of God’s Word in my life and the life of the church.


I share the same ministry goals as Harvest. And God says that believers are to be committed to one another for the sake of spiritual impact (Ephesians 4:16).

I believe that Jesus has a work to do in the Rochester area and around the world, and I am willing to join with others who have the same vision to see that it gets done.


I accept responsibility for a group of fellow believers in the family of God. And that is God’s plan as well(Galatians 6:1-2, 10)

I want to be part of a caring network of people, sharing one another’s joys and sorrows, and helping one another grow through worship, Bible study, and fellowship.


I am accountable to mature brothers and sisters in Christ for my walk with God. And God warns against spiritual autonomy (Hebrews 13:17; Matthew 18:15-20).

I want to receive the guidance, equipping, and assistance necessary to remain on target and you do not want to go it alone in standing for Jesus Christ.


I accept responsibility for how things are done here. And God says that is how it should be(1 Corinthians 12:20-27)

Elders, deacons, and other church leaders are called from within and serve the congregation. I believe every member needs to contribute their unique gifting and passion to contribute to a healthy body.
