I would like to be considered for membership with Christ Fellowship of Kansas City. I have read The Fellowship of the Spirit as well as Restoring Those Who Fall, and I believe both accurately reflect Christ’s standard of conduct for His followers. I have also read Holding Fast the Word of Life and How We Use Our Statement of Faith, along with The Communion of the Body of Christ, Divorce, Remarriage, and Church Polity, and What Christ Fellowship Members May Expect from Pastoral Counseling with Our Elders. Though I may not fully understand or agree with every point of doctrine, I find Holding Fast the Word of Life to be an acceptable summary of biblical truth. With respect to the other documents listed above, even where I disagree in doctrine or practice I agree to cooperate as required in the body of these documents. In all respects I will pursue doctrinal understanding and unity with a humble and teachable spirit.
I know that no local church will ever be perfect, but I believe Christ Fellowship is a true church, organized and governed according to the commands and example of the New Testament, and in obedience to Christ its Head.
I have read the document, Becoming a Member. I understand that the acceptance of this petition does not guarantee membership, but rather begins the process through which I will be considered for membership. I further affirm that my answers to the questions in this petition are truthful and complete.
