Those desiring to become professing members of SMNL respond to a series of questions. They are first asked to renounce wickedness, evil, and sin, and to accept the freedom and power of God to resist evil, injustice, and oppression. Then they are asked if they confess Jesus Christ as their Savior, and trust and serve him as their Lord. The next question asks each to promise to remain a faithful member of Christ’s church, and to serve as his representative in the world. Then, together with the congregation, all profess the Christian faith as contained in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, based on the Apostles’ Creed. Then there are two questions about church membership.
  1. As a member of Christ’s universal Church, will you be loyal to Christ through St. Matthew’s New Life, and do all in your power to strengthen its ministries?
  2. As members of this congregation, will you faithfully participate in its ministries by your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service and your witness?
