Minister:          Dearly beloved, do you confess your faith in Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, and make him your example, and take for your rule of life his words: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  And…thy neighbor as thyself?

Response:       I do.



Minister:          In the presence of God and these witnesses, do you give yourself unreservedly to his service, and take this to be your church?  Ever mindful of the welfare of your fellow members, do you promise to walk with them in faithfulness and Christian love?  And do you promise that, so far as able, you will attend the services of this church, observe its sacraments, share in its work, support, and benevolences, and endeavor to make it a fruitful body of Christians?

Response:       I do



We then as members of this church, gladly welcome you to a part with us in the hopes, the labors, and the joys of the Church of Christ.  We promise to walk with you in Christian love and sympathy, and to promote, as far as in us lies, your growth in the Christian life.
