We’re excited to have you consider Old Fort Baptist Church as your church family. Our Covenant Membership Class is the next step to learn more about what we believe as a church, what God is doing through OFBC, and it also provides an opportunity to get plugged into the community at here.
THINGS TO KNOW
The Covenant Membership Class is available on May 26, August 25 & November 24. Please register using the form on the right or contact our Discipleship Pastor, Charles McCallum at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT IS COVENANT MEMBERSHIP?
"It’s the idea that commitment in a local church is a two-way street. The believer commits to attend, pray for, uphold the doctrines of, and generally promote the mission of a particular congregation. Meanwhile, the congregation as a whole agrees to teach, pray for, encourage, and generally hold every member accountable to live a Christ-like life. While covenant church membership is implied in a number of passages, it’s also an implicit part of the Bible’s storyline: God ordained a people for himself and as God’s people the church is to live out, together, all the commandments of Christ." The Loving-kindness of Church Membership by Aaron Menikoff
