I belong here. God says believers belong together (Hebrews 10:23-25) and I sense God wants me with the people of Harvest Bible Chapel. I want to make a public declaration of my commitment to God's work in this church.
I affirm, believe, and support the teaching of this church. God says the early 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, embracing the authority of God's word in my life and and the life of the church.
I share the same ministry goals as Harvest. God says believers are to be committed to one another for the sake of spiritual impact (Ephesians 4:16). I believe Jesus has a work to do here and around the world. I want to join with others who share this vision and desire to work for Christ.
I accept responsibility for a group of fellow believers in the family of God. It is God's plan for the Church (Galatians 6:1-2, 10). I want to be part of a caring community of people, sharing joys and sorrows, and helping each other to grow through worship, Bible study, and fellowship.
I am accountable to mature brothers and sisters in Christ for my walk with God. God warns against spiritual autonomy (Hebrews 13:17, Matthew 18:15-20) and I want to receive the guidance, equipping, and assistance necessary to walk worthy.
I accept the authority and role of the church leadership. God has established this structure (1 Corinthians 12:20-27) . Elders, deacons, and other church leaders are called from within to serve the church body. I also believe every member needs to contribute their gifts and serve within the church.
