I affirm that:
I understand that the church does not allow its facilities to be used in a way that contradicts its statement of faith or by persons or groups holding beliefs that contradict the church’s statement of faith.
To the best of my knowledge the purpose for which I am requesting use of church facilities will not contradict the church’s statement of faith, and I commit to promptly disclose any potential conflict for which I am aware or become aware to the church staff.
I am not aware of any beliefs that are professed by me or the organization I represent and which is requesting use of the church’s facilities that contradict the beliefs of the church. I agree to promptly disclose any potential conflicts in belief to the church staff.
I understand that upon approval of my facilities use request, I will need to provide a security deposit in the amount of $100.00, a certificate of insurance for at least $1,000,000.00 of coverage (if applicable), and any other fees required by the church.
I understand that the church does not allow its facilities to be generally available to the public, and that my use of these facilities is subject to the pastor’s approval, which is conditioned in part on my agreement to the requirements in the “Church Facility Use Policy,” a copy of which I have read and understood.
I understand that I will be responsible for any damages to the church facilities resulting from this proposed use of facilities.
The church believes disputes are to be worked out between parties without recourse to the courts. See, generally, Matthew Chapter 18 and 1 Corinthians Chapter 6. Accordingly, users of the facility agree to attempt resolution through Christian mediation, and failing that to submit to binding arbitration through the American Arbitration Association, or any other mutually acceptable arbitration service.
I, the undersigned, do hereby absolve First Baptist Church of Garner from any liability for any injury incurred during the usage of said facilities. I understand the security deposit will be forfeited in part or in whole if damages are incurred during usage or the facility is left unclean and I agree to pay for any damages and/or cleaning charges that exceed the deposit amount.
By entering my electronic signature below, I affirm that I have read and agree to the terms of this agreement and the "Church Facility Use Policy" at:
