The Gathering Network Covenant

 

We commit to live a life of love lived in three directions:

The 3 loves

Love God: and be loved by him (UP)

With generous devotion by building our lives on personal worship and the study of God's word, knowing our devotion is a response to God's unfailing love for us.

Love each other: and disciple each other in community (IN)

We covenant to make disciples who make disciples who make disciples…

Love the world: share Jesus generously and always

We covenant to pray for opportunities to share the gospel in words and deeds.

 

The 4 commitments

Serve regularly in missional communities and discipleship

We covenant to serve in one missional community as our fellowship of believers.

Grow in personal holiness

We covenant to embrace a holistic biblical worldview regarding our entire life: work, play, sexuality, resources, family, future, etc – believing Jesus is Lord over all of life.

Grow to give 10% of your income as a tithe

We covenant to worship God with our finances, agreeing that 10% has served as a healthy measure of generosity throughout biblical history. We also will give above and beyond to ministries outside the Gathering Network as so led.

Live a gospeling lifestyle

We covenant to share that Jesus is Lord and his kingdom is here in both words and deeds in our city, state, nation, to the ends of the earth.

Each September we celebrate covenant season. On the last Sunday of September, we call people to join us in living in covenant community for one calendar year. You can become a covenant partner at any time of the year by first processing the decision with your missional community leader, d-group leader, or a staff member.

Any follower of Jesus [age 13 and above] is invited to become a covenant member of the Gathering Network community. In covenanting with us, you both agree to and adopt our shared values.
