When Cornerstone enters into covenant membership with you, we are testifying that to the best of our knowledge, you are a follower of Jesus. This should be a very encouraging affirmation! When you are doubting, when you find yourself in sin and shame, when you fear that God's salvation is not for you, covenant membership serves as a reminder that there is an entire faith family that testifies (to the best of their knowledge) to your salvation.
Likewise, when you are in sin, and your sinful heart refuses to repent of the sin and seek forgiveness and healing, the covenant members of the church walk with you, in grace and truth, to help you see your sin, confess your sin, and turn from your sin before it destroys you. This is an act of gracious love and why we find much value in covenant membership.
