Membership Covenant

The following is the Church Covenant, which in general outlines the duties/responsibilities of the membership at Logos Baptist Church.

 “Having, as we trust, been brought by divine grace to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and to give up ourselves to Him, and having been baptized by immersion with believer’s baptism upon our profession of faith, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, we do now, relying on His gracious aid, solemnly and joyfully enter our covenant with each other as fellow members of Logos Baptist Church:

TO pledge that if we move from this place, we will unite with some other church, as soon as possible, where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word:
* With our signature, we do humbly submit to live in accordance with the spirit of this covenant, not in our own strength, being conscious of our own weaknesses, but in the power and gracious aid of our Lord, to whom we are bondservants. To God be the Glory.”
