I joyfully enter into covenant with Reformation Covenant Church, thereby agreeing to respect* her Confession, and enter into the mutual edification of her members. I vow the following:

  1. I acknowledge myself to be a sinner in the sight of the Triune God, justly deserving His displeasure, and without hope except in His sovereign mercy. i
  2. I believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, as the Son of God and Savior of sinners, and I receive and rest upon Him alone for salvation, as He is offered in the gospel. ii
  3. I now resolve and promise, in humble reliance upon the grace of the Holy Spirit, to live as a follower of Christ. iii
  4. I will submit to the leadership and participate in the government of this church, diligently pursuing her unity and well-being; and, if I decide to pursue membership at another church, I will endeavor to transfer my membership in an orderly and godly manner. iv
  5. I will strive to trust and obey all of God’s law, as embodied in the person of Jesus Christ and revealed in the Ten Commandments – summarized by loving the Lord my God with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength, and loving my neighbor as myself. v
