why do we call
Romans 12:3-5 reveals why we affectionately call one another "church members." In this scripture, Paul unveils the extraordinary reality of grace-infused differences – unique gifts, callings, and talents. It's as if each of us is a distinct part of God's masterpiece. Just as a human body functions harmoniously with its diverse parts or members, we, as the body of Christ, move through unity and through diversity. Our term "church member" goes beyond mere words; it encapsulates the essence of our heart to be united in Christ. We're not solitary pilgrims; we're part of an interconnected tapestry of faith. Embracing this truth, no matter the scale of our contribution, amplifies the greatness of God's kingdom. Our united journey magnifies His love, power, and goodness. Let's cherish our uniqueness, uniting our gifts to create a culture of revival, radiating love, healing, and transformation in a world hungry for The Gospel.

Covenant Membership at
church at denver
We firmly believe that following the biblical pattern, every believer should become a member of a local community of believers. This membership allows us to continually grow in grace and faith. Moreover, we strongly emphasize the concept of covenant membership, where each member of our church family enters into a covenant with one another. This covenant entails supporting and uplifting each other in accordance with the principles outlined in the New Testament.
