Invitation to Join the Christ Covenant International Ministry

Membership Vows

   The Elders of Christ Covenant International Ministries welcome all persons who believe in Jesus Christ into church membership.  Membership in this virtual church is more about connecting to a family of believers that have a passion for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ, than receiving a piece of paper.

   When the elders of Christ Covenant International Ministry reviews requests for church membership from prospective members, they will be asking the following questions about your Christian faith. You are invited to join the Christ Covenant International Ministry if you can answer truly and affirmatively the following questions. 



Trusting in the mercy of God, do you turn from the ways of sin that separate you from the love of God, and in the name of Jesus Christ, do you renounce the power of evil in the world?


Do you turn to Jesus Christ, accepting him as your Lord and Savior?

Do you...?


Will you seek to be a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ, obeying the Word of God in the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, and demonstrating the love of Jesus Christ through your life and relationships?


Will you be a faithful member of Christ Covenant Church, sharing in our worship and ministries through your prayers and financial gifts, your study and service as you seek to fulfill your discipleship to Jesus Christ?

Will you...?


  Our elders meet periodically to review information about the people who request membership in the Christ Covenant International Ministries. When you decide that you would like to join this fellowship of believers, tell us about yourself and why you would like to be a member of this virtual church and a part of this international ministry.

A New Vision of Membership

Because Christ Covenant International Ministries is a virtual church on the internet, anyone can become a member of this ministry while keeping their membership and staying active in their local church. In fact our elders recommend that every member actively participate in a church in their own community, if possible. We encourage all of you to meet with other Christians whenever you can, remembering that Jesus said, “Where two or three are gathered together, there I will be also.” Please use the materials we have provided here, if you wish, to aide you in your worship together. All the elders and staff of the Christ Covenant International Ministries are members of local churches and active in ministry where they live.

 Copy and sign the membership vows above and email or mail it to the address below. You may become a member without making any donation, and people can make donations to this ministry without becoming members.

Christ Covenant International Ministries is a registered non-profit ministry, and all contributions are tax deductible. Make a donation at the time you join or at any time in the future to encourage this church and participate in Christ Covenant International Ministries.

Mail membership information to:

Be sure to include your email and mailing address. When we receive your membership pledge, we will send a membership certificate to your mailing address.

 The Meaning of Church Membership

“The incarnation of God in life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ gives to the church not only its mission but also its understanding of membership. One becomes an active member of the church through faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and acceptance of his Lordship in all of life. Baptism and a public profession of faith in Jesus as Lord are the visible signs of entrance into the active membership of the church. …

 “A faithful member accepts Christ’s call to be involved responsibly in the ministry of his Church. 
Such involvement includes


Proclaiming the good news


Taking part in the common life and worship of a particular church


Praying and studying Scripture and the faith of the Christian Church


Supporting the work of the church through the giving of money, time, and talents


Participating in the governing responsibilities of the church


Demonstrating a new quality of life within and through the church


Responding to God’s activity in the world through service to others


Living responsibly in the personal, family, vocational, political, cultural, and social relationships of life


Working in the world for peace, justice, freedom, and human fulfillment

 “The congregation shall welcome all persons who respond in trust and obedience to God’s grace in Jesus Christ and desire to become part of the membership and ministry of his Church. No persons shall be denied membership because of race, ethnic origin, worldly condition, or any other reason not related to profession of faith. Each member must seek the grace of openness in extending the fellowship of Christ to all persons. Failure to do so constitutes a rejection of Christ himself and causes a scandal to the gospel…

 “Accepting the privilege and responsibility of membership in the church is a commitment to Jesus Christ that binds the individual to fulfillment of the obligations of membership. Members shall regularly review and evaluate the integrity with which they are involved in the ministry of the church and consider ways in which their participation in the worship and service of the church may be increased and made more meaningful.”

 Quoted statements on membership (above) come from the Book of Order, G-5.0100-5.0500

 Ministry Goals

This web site will provide instruction to people who are seeking more information about making a profession of faith in Jesus Christ. We will provide guidance about becoming a new creation through the redemptive gift of Jesus Christ and living more like our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Please send us your questions and comments.

Click here for more information about making a profession of faith.

 We urge all members of this ministry and all visitors to this web site to become active members in a local church in your area that teaches from the Bible and encourages people to live as Christ has called us to live. When you realize that Jesus Christ is calling you to become a part of the fellowship of believers, make a public profession of your faith in a Christian community where you live. Have the pastor of your church baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  

Description of Members

 Have you seen pictures from the 1960s of happy Christian families entering the church for worship? They seem to be perfect. Most of the people who participate in the ministries of Christ Covenant International Ministries would not be mistaken for these perfect people. Even though each one of us is precious to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and we usually remember that we have great value, most of us are not very attractive on the outside. Some of us are attractive on the outside, but we have secrets or difficulties that make us anxious or ashamed. All of us sometimes have physical ailments that make it difficult to attend church weekly. Sometimes our emotional health is not dependable enough to greet fellow parishioners. Sometimes our struggles—which are often very real—make it difficult to blend in with other people at church. People sometimes ignore or mistreat us.

Some of us have done something that has hurt someone, and most of us have been hurt by someone very deeply. And so we gather together before the holy God each week—or more often. We confess our sins to God and to one another, and receive assurance of God’s forgiveness. We seek God’s wisdom and guidance and consult with one another and work together for the kingdom of God. We pray together and for one another, and we worship together. We study God’s holy word and use its guidance in our lives. We praise God and give thanks for all we have received. We receive blessings that only God can provide.

Invitation to Stewardship

 The staff of Christ Covenant International Ministries encourages all members and visitors to actively participate in their local Christian congregations if possible. We encourage you to attend worship, read your Bible daily, participate in learning groups, become involved in evangelism (both locally and globally), and participate in local and global ministry to people in need.

 We would like to hear about and see pictures of any ministry in which you are active. Email information and pictures to bonnietexas at or mail them to the address above.

 Remember, Christian stewardship is not a payment to reimburse a debt or meet a financial need but a thankful response to all that God is providing. We give of our time, our money, and our talents. God gives us sunshine and shade, rest and activity, friends and family. The benefits we enjoy through God’s creation are too numerous to mention. Most of all we are thankful for God’s grace, expressed in the word of God, our Bible, the ministry of churches throughout the world, and the possibility of serving in God’s kingdom through acceptance of Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. We are invited to spend eternity with God in heaven.

 We express our thanks to God by Christian service in our communities, helping to support Christian ministry, and telling others about God’s gifts—especially Christ’s invitation to forgiveness and peace. We are also called to return to God a tithe of all that we have received. A tithe is 10% (.1) of all the gifts and money you receive, including the wealth you have accumulated. You can give part of this money to help with the financial support of your local church, the Christ Covenant International Ministries, other ministries through this web site, and other Christian ministries.
