1. Since our mission is “To honor God and journey with Him in making authentic followers of Jesus through genuine relationships," it is essential that our partners have a relationship with Jesus Christ.
2. We believe that the Bible is clear about God’s desire for each of us to make a public profession of faith through baptism. If you haven’t been baptized, just mark no when asked on the partnership application and we will contact you.
3. We equate partnership with involvement. We will ask about your involvement on a service team or in a Small Group. We will contact you to assist with baptism or getting connected in a Small Group or strategic service team. When all three qualifications are complete, your application will be processed for Partnership.
As a partner you will have certain privileges. They are as follows:
-Amend the by-laws
-Exclusive power to hire a Senior Pastor
-Exclusive power to adopt or amend annual budget and authorize financial matters exceeding 10% of annual budget.
-Exclusive power to authorize merger or affiliations with any other church
-Exclusive power to dissolve the church
-Exclusive power to decide any matter the Elders are not able to decide in the by-laws.
We want to make this experience as easy as possible for you, so if any section is unclear or if you have questions, please email Pastor Carlos Herrera at firstname.lastname@example.org
