The Vows of Membership

The Vows of Membership

For all new members transferring from other churches or joining on Confession of Faith:

Minister
Are you striving to love the Lord your God with all your mind, with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your strength?  Are you striving to love your neighbor as yourself ?

Response
I am.

Minister
And do you desire to serve Christ through Peachtree Road United Methodist Church?

Response
I do.

For those joining on Confession of Faith only:

Minister
On behalf of the whole church, we ask you: Do you truly and earnestly repent of your sins?  Do you believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth?  Do you confess Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?  Do you receive the Holy Spirit, the giver and sustainer of life?  Do you profess the Christian faith as contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments?  Do you promise, according to the grace given you, to keep God’s holy will and Commandments, and to walk in the same all the days of your life as a faithful member of Christ’s holy church?

Response
I do.

Then the person shall kneel, and the Minister, laying hands upon the head of each candidate shall say:
The Lord defend you with His heavenly grace and by His Spirit confirm you in the faith and fellowship of all true disciples of Jesus Christ.

Response
Amen.
