The Covenant of Westminster Membership
“I accept Jesus Christ as my savior; I trust in God as sovereign over all creation; and, I rejoice in the sustaining power of the Holy Spirit. Accepting my responsibility as a member of Westminster, I will strive to be faithful in worship attendance, to nurture my faith, and to find some definite place of usefulness in the mission of the congregation. Acknowledging that all we have is a gift from God, and responding to God’s grace and love, I will be a faithful steward, and I promise to give regularly of myself and my resources to the ministry of Westminster.”
