Membership Covenant


Having received Christ as my Lord and Savior and been baptized, and being in agreement with First Baptist Moss Bluff's statements, strategy and structure, I now feel led by the Holy Spirit to unite with the First Batist Church family.  In doing so, I commit myself to God and to the other members to do the following:

I WILL PROTECT THE UNITY OF FIRST BAPTIST MOSS BLUFF by acting in love toward other members:

  • by refusing to gossip

  • by following our leadership

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of our mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs... Ephesians 4:29
Obey your leaders and submit to their authority.  They keep watch over you as men who must give an account.  Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be no advantage to you.  Hebrews 13:17

I WILL SHARE IN THE RESPONSIBILITY OF FIRST BAPTIST MOSS BLUFF by praying and working for its growth.

  • by inviting the unchurched to attend

  • by warmly welcoming those who visit

The master said to the servant, "Go out to the roads and country lanes, and urge the people there to come so my house will be full.  Luke 14:23 
So warmly welcome each other into the church, just as Christ has warmly welcomed you; then God will be glorified.  Romans 15:7

I WILL SERVE THE MINISTRY OF FIRST BAPTIST MOSS BLUFF by serving within my gifts and talents:

  • by being equipped to serve alongside my pastors

  • by developing a servant's heart

He is the one who gave the gifts to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers.  Their responsibility is to equip God's people to do his work and build up the church.  Ephesians 4:11-12
Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others... 1 Peter 4:10

I WILL SUPPORT THE MINISTRY OF FIRST BAPTIST MOSS BLUFF by making it a priority in my life:

  • by attending faithfully

  • by living a godly life

  • by regular financial giving

Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another… Hebrews 10:25

Be suer that you live in a way that brings honor to the Good News of Christ.  Philippians 1:27

Bring to the storehouse a full tenth of what you earn so there will be food in my house.  Malachi 3:10
