Covenant of Lutheran Church of the Resurrection

As a child of God, brother/sister to all human beings, and a believer in Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, I desire to enter into this Covenant with the community of Lutheran Church of the Resurrection.

  1. Because God loves us unconditionally, we will strive in the same way to share our Christian love through acceptance, forgiveness, and understanding of our fellow members.

  2. Aware that God meets us in a special way in worship and through the Means of Grace, Baptism, and Holy Communion, we will faithfully participate in our common celebration of God’s love for all people through Jesus Christ.

  3. Accepting the Word as the basis of the Church and recognizing our need to strengthen our faith and to maintain our Lutheran heritage, we will participate in programs offered to continue our Christian knowledge and growth.

  4. Following Christ’s example, we will seek guidance through prayer.

  5. As Christ did not turn away from anyone in need, we will reach out, without hesitation, to serve others and witness to our faith in daily life.

  6. Following Christ’s command to “make disciples of all nations”, we will encourage and invite all others into Christian fellowship.

  7. Thankful that God has given us all we have, we will joyfully give a first portion of our time, our abilities, and our possessions for God’s work.

  8. We seek the help of God and support of our fellow members in keeping the Covenant, and ask their acceptance, forgiveness, and understanding should we fail.
