To venable (verb): To randomly muse upon this and that.

We publicly received Olu Jibowu as a member of Feltham Evangelical Church yesterday. Here are the confessions she made (and all new members have made for the last ten years or so):-

  • Are you a Christian?
  • Have you been born again by the Holy Spirit of God?
  • Have you believed in the LORD Jesus Christ as your own Saviour who gave Himself on the cross to take away your sins?
  • Do you commit yourself to living, with the Lord’s help, a God honouring life being obedient to the commands of God?
  • Do you commit yourself to supporting the leadership, members and activities of Feltham Evangelical Church?

The taking of these vows:-

  • Shows that membership is not a trivial thing.
  • Makes people accountable because they have publicly made this commitment to the church.
  • Gives common ground for all members because all have taken the same vows.
