What is expected of me as a member of Crosspoint?

At Crosspoint we never ask our members to do more than the Bible clearly teaches.  We only expect our members to do what the Bible expects every Christian to do.  These responsibilities are spelled out in the Membership Covenant.


The Crosspoint Membership Covenant


“Having received Christ as my Lord and Savior and been baptized, and being in agreement with Crosspoint”s statements, strategy and structure, I now feel led by the Holy Spirit to unite with the Crosspoint church family.  In doing so, I commit myself to God and to the other members to do the following:


I.    I will protect the unity of the Church

…By acting in love toward other members

…By refusing to gossip

…By following the leaders


“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirity of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus”  Rom. 15:5

“Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart.”  1 Peter 1:22

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of our mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs…” Eph. 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.”   Heb. 13:17


II.   I will share the responsibility of my Church

…By praying for its growth

…By inviting the unchurched to attend

…By warmly welcoming those who visit


“To the church…we always thank God for you and pray for you  constantly. ”  1 Thess. 1:2 NLT

“Go out to the roads and country lanes and make them come in, so that my house will be full.”  Luke 14:23

“Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.”  Rom.15:7


III.   I will serve the ministry of my Church


…By discovering my gifts and talents

…By being equipped to serve by my pastors

…By developing a servant’s heart


“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10

“God gave…some to be pastors and teachers to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up…”  Eph. 4:11-12

“Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.  Your attitude should be the same as that of Jesus Christ…who took on the very nature of a servant…” Phil. 2:4.-7


IV.   I will support the Testimony of my Church

…By attending faithfully

,,,By living a godly life

…By giving regularly


“Let us not give up the habit of meeting together… but let us encourage one another…”  Heb. 10:25

“Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worth y of the gospel of Christ.”  Phil. 1:27

“On the first day of each week, you should each put aside a portion of the money you have earned.” 1 Cor. 16:2 NLT

“A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the LORD; It is holy to the LORD.” Lev.27:30
