Privilege and Responsibility
Some churches practice an open form of membership with little in the way of requirements or responsibilities on the part of the member or the church. The result is membership rolls comprised of the names of many who have little or no involvement with the church.
At Boone Trail Baptist, covenant membership is a relationship which requires accountability on the part of the church and the individual. We believe that church membership is much more than adding your name to a list. It is joining with others who share the same beliefs and goals and working hand-in-hand in the support and fulfillment of those goals.
Membership requires commitment from all involved. Our desire, through covenant membership, is to allow you to understand who we are, why we exist, and what we are becoming as a church family, and then ask you to commit to that process.
Covenant Membership is the conviction that each member shares a common purpose and belief structure. Covenant Membership is our mutual desire to safeguard the unity, share the responsibility, serve the ministry, and support the mission of Boone Trail Baptist Church.
Membership at Boone Trail Baptist may best be described as a partnership between you and the church. Together, we seek to encourage and support each other in our daily lives and lead one another in a deeper, more passionate commitment to our mission statement: Love, Connect, Serve.
The Bible describes the church as the body of Christ with each member being an important part of making the body function as it was intended. Each member has a place in our church family. As a church body, we can accomplish more together than we can separately. If you choose to become a part of Boone Trail Baptist, we truly believe, based on the instruction of the Bible, that God has a specific place and function for you here within our church family.
