The Covenant of Westminster Membership
“Trusting in God’s saving grace through Jesus Christ, I accept the joys and responsibilities of church membership and commit myself to the journey of faith.
I will strive to live as Christ’s faithful disciple, following his teaching and showing his love and justice. I will do my best to be faithful in worship attendance, to nurture my faith, and to find some definite place of usefulness in the life and ministry of this community.
Acknowledging that all we have is a gift from our Creator, and responding to God’s grace and love, I will be a faithful steward and will contribute, as I am able, my gifts and resources to Westminster and to the Holy Spirit that sustains me.”
