Ephesians 2:19 "You are citizens along with all of God's holy people. You are members of God's family."

What's the difference between being a Christian and attending a church and being a member of a church family? The difference is the word "Commitment."

  • I become a Christian by committing my life to Christ.

  • I become a member of a church by committing myself to other Christians and being part of building the Kingdom of God.

I say, "That's going to be my church home where I'm going to give and be given to, where I'm going to serve and be served, where I'll love and be loved."

The Cowboy Church is open to anyone who meets the following qualifications:

  • A member must have personal commitment of faith in Jesus Christ for salvation.

  • A member must have been baptized by immersion after faith in Christ as testimony of Salvation.

  • A member must have attended The Cowboy Church Introduction and Discover the Trail to Membership Class.
