Dear Fellow Christian,
I am Del Way, the Senior Pastor of Calvary Temple Church, and I am so glad you are asking about becoming a part of our church family. I pray you will join with us as we equip the saints and reach the lost.
Calvary is a FAMILY of believers with one purpose in mind, to be all that God wants us to be.
If you decide Calvary is the church for you, then I want to encourage you in a few areas. As a part of the family, it is so important to be faithful in attending regular and special services. First, it is good for you because you never know when the word you need will be spoken, and second, your faithful attendance becomes a great witness to people around you.
Also, I believe if we make a church our home, that is where our tithe should go. Tithing is the key to living under an open heaven.
As a church family member, we also ask that you pray for and support your Pastor as well as one another, and speaking of support, that leads me to my last point. There is always work to be done and I encourage you to ask the Lord to use you and ask our Pastors or staff where help is needed. Find a need and meet it.
Let me urge you to read about the ·ministry of Calvary carefully, our history, beliefs and outreaches, before filling out the Family Profile form and agreeing to the “Count Me In!” section below. When you have completed these and submitted them to our office, we will issue you a file card containing your contribution file number.
We would really appreciate a recent photo of you and your family for our files so we can put a face with your name.
Please don’t hesitate to contact our offices if we can assist you in any way.
3 John 2!
Count me in! I want to be a part of the Calvary family.
As a born-again believer, in agreement with the doctrines and practices of Calvary Temple Church, I hereby request to be considered as a part of the Calvary family. I agree to abide by the Biblical beliefs of the church, to attend services regularly, to serve where needed and to support the ministries of the church with my tithes and offerings.
I understand that by conveying to people around me that I am a part of the Calvary Temple Church family of believers, I have a responsibility in the sight of the Lord and to the church to live by the precepts and guidelines established in accordance with the Bible. I realize that I represent Calvary Temple Church, its Pastor, leadership and most of all, the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, I agree with the Bible (Romans 16:17 KJV) (1 Corinthians 5:9-13 NIV) that anyone whose attitude, conduct and/or beliefs should be in serious conflict with those of this church which are clearly described in the Word of God, may and should be separated from the fellowship of the church.
