Last week we looked at the first 2 membership vows. Here are the final 3:
3). Do you confess that because of your sinfulness you abhor and humble yourself before God, that you repent of your sin, and that you trust for salvation not in yourself but in Jesus Christ alone?
4). Do you acknowledge Jesus Christ as your sovereign Lord, and do you promise that, in reliance on the grace of God, you will serve Him with all that is in you, forsake the world, resist the devil, put to death your sinful deeds and desires, and
lead a godly life?
5). Do you promise to participate faithfully in this church’s worship and service, to submit in the Lord to its government, and to heed its discipline, even in case you should be found delinquent in doctrine or life?
“Thomas answered Him, My Lord and my God!” (John 20:28)
“Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls…” (Hebrews 13:17)
