Does your church have a covenant? Does your church use its covenant? Should churches have covenants? And how should a church covenant be used?
Those can actually be pretty controversial questions. Mark Dever and others at IX Marks Ministries have invested significant time and energy into helping churches work through some of the controversy and develop biblical covenants and constitutions.
I’ll probably have more to say about church covenants later. For now, I’d like to ask you to think about the four questions I posed at the beginning of the post and share your answers in the comments. Thanks!
