A partnership is a friendship of equal parties where koinonia (fellowship) happens in an ongoing, mutually beneficial manner. Most importantly, the partnership is for the advance of the gospel. Partnering with theTransit as a member carries the expectation that a person identifies with Transit vision and values, commits to our Philosophy of Ministry, and commits to be a good steward of their time, talent (natural abilities and spiritual gifts) and treasure (finances).
A covenant is a promise where people obligate themselves to one another in such a way that the obligation of one party is not dependent on the faithfulness of the other. Being a member of a church is really about being a part of a family. All members are disciples of Jesus, unified by their identity in Christ. Our unity is expressed in the way we collaborate in loving God, each other and everyone around us. Church members who enter into a covenant with their local church are called to a higher degree of responsibility and service. theTransit Church Member Covenant includes: (1) a member’s personal statement of faith; (2) the church’s statement of biblical doctrine; (3) the obligations of theTransit to its members; and (4) the obligations of members to theTransit.
