Covenant Membership

Let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works.
— Hebrews 10:24

Covenant membership is a commitment to one another.

It's a willing pledge to guard, care, submit, support, and minister together for the building up of our church body.

Joining the covenant community at Five Points is a public expression of your commitment to fulfill the 44 "one another" commands found in the New Testament and is an integral part of our witness to the world around us.

Becoming a Member

Step 1: Attend a Class

We would love to meet with you and explain the basics of what we believe here at Five Points, including a biblical understanding of membership. Each class has two sessions covering the church's theological foundation, history, constitution, and expectations for members. Contact the church office or see the church calendar to find out when the next class will be held. 

Step 2: Meet With an Elder and a Deacon

Upon completing the class, please contact the office once more to set up a time to meet with an elder and a deacon. During this meeting, you will share your testimony of God's grace in your life and have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the church.

Step 3: Agree with Our Confession of Faith, Enter into Our Covenant of Membership, and Agree to be Governed by Our Bylaws

We require all covenant members to heartily affirm the New Hampshire Confession of Faith, freely enter into our Covenant of Membership, and agree to be governed by our church Bylaws. The Covenant of Membership and Bylaws can be found in our church constitution. Read more about our beliefs here.

Step 4: Be Confirmed at a Members' Meeting

Our church constitution requires that new members be approved by the current membership at a Members' Meeting. Check the calendar for when our next meeting will be.
