All Christians are members of God’s household (Ephesians 2:19). God calls us to function in various ways in the body of Christ. As a healthy body needs its members to function in unity, a healthy church needs unified, committed, and functioning members. As a healthy body part needs the whole body, God has designed the Christian life to work in the community. Fellowship with other believers is a part of our walk with God, not an addition to it (1 John 1).
“Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body and each member belongs to all the others.”
To become a Covenant Community Member we ask that you attend Covenant Community Membership classes. These classes cover essential doctrines of the Christian faith. We pursue a biblical view of the gospel, the church and culture, and Christian living. Everyone who wishes to join Epiphany Fellowship must attend these classes. After you have completed the Covenant Community membership process, you can select a ministry in which to serve.
Our next Covenant Community cohort starts on June 6, 2021. You can click here to register

At Epiphany Fellowship, we value Covenant Community Members. They function as the primary missionaries of the gospel to the culture. God, in His sovereignty, placed us in this city, among these people, in this century, for a reason (Acts 17:26-27).
In many churches, overworked pastors and church staff do the bulk of the work. This is not God’s design. Epiphany Fellowship is committed to reflecting God’s heart for His children: a redeemed servant community that shares and lives out the gospel with authenticity by God’s grace.
Covenant community membership is not a status symbol or entrance into a social club. It is a solemn commitment to function faithfully as a part of the body of Christ. Epiphany’s elders make a reciprocal commitment to covenant community members: to provide counsel, service, and aid and to pray, teach, and guide.
