I will be a person of integrity. I understand my attitude and actions should reveal my commitment to Christ. My attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.
“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 Christ Jesus” Philippians 2: 4-5
“Do everything without complaining or arguing”
I understand that I need to be pursuing consistent spiritual growth. Prayer, Bible Study, and Church Involvement are essential to one’s growing relationship with Christ.
“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” Colossians 2:6-7
I will seek to be Christ like in all relationships. I will not let petty quarrels, harsh words, or bitterness prevent me from loving God and my neighbor. God is Love. I will work to the best of my ability to be a healer of brokenness and division.
“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against to one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” Colossians 3:12-14
I will attend all leadership meetings and practices necessary to my position and area of ministry.
“ I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.”
I will be faithful in attending BCM and will do my best to help out in any way.
“We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, “I love God,” yet hates his brother he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.”
I John 4:19-21
I will speak and live out a consistent witness and will seek opportunities to serve in Christ’s name and share His Love.
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast.”
