Having received Jesus Christ as my Savior by accepting His forgiveness and transforming grace and having been baptized, I yield to His Lordship as a participant in the family of Christ, expressed in the local church.
Being in agreement with Oak Dale’s vision, I join the Oak Dale Church family and covenant to do the following, as God gives me grace:
- I will protect the unity of my church
. . .by acting in love toward other members
. . .by giving and receiving encouragement
. . .by following the leaders
- I Peter 1:22
. . .love one another deeply, from the heart.
- I will share the responsibility of my church
. . .by praying for the church
. . .by inviting the un-churched to attend
. . .by welcoming those who visit
- Romans 15:7
Accept one another, then,
just as Christ accepted you. . .
- I will serve the ministry of my church
. . .by discovering my gifts and talents
. . .by preparing myself for servant work
. . .by developing a servant’s heart
- I Peter 4:10
Each one should use whatever gift he has
received to serve others. . .
- I will support the testimony of my church
. . .by attending faithfully
. . .by living a godly life
. . .by giving regularly
- Hebrews 10:25
Let us not give up meeting together. . .
