1. You MUST select the primary Reformed Confession you subscribe to. You MUST also clearly state your degree of Confessional adherence in the Degree of confessional adherence (READ DIRECTIONS) field below.
2. If you selected "Other" you MUST give sufficient information in the Degree of confessional adherence (READ DIRECTIONS) field below for the Admins to determine suitability for membership. Simply stating "I am a 5-point Calvinist" in the Degree of confessional adherence (READ DIRECTIONS) field below without accompanying explanation WILL NOT be sufficient.
READ CAREFULLY: What follows are not one word answer requests. Most applications are rejected because of the applicant's incomplete explanations concerning the following.
1. Explain how it is that you fully agree or take some exceptions with your selected Confession.
2. Explain your adherence to your selected confession AND include any stated differences with Reformed Confessions.
3. If you selected "Other" for your Confessional Subscription above
you are attending or perhaps pastoring at a non-Reformed or progressive denomination, or the church and the confession you claim conflict (e.g. claim WCF but attend a Baptist church)
explain your claim of adherence to confessional Reformed theology in this section.
For example, let's say you affirm the WCF or the LBCF and are attending or perhaps a Pastor at a church that does not affirm one of these confessions. In this scenario you are REQUIRED to explain in detail why is it that, on the one hand, you affirm a Reformed confession yet, on the other hand, you continue to attend or pastor at a non-Reformed or progressive church, or the church and the confession you claim conflict (e.g. claim WCF but attend a Baptist church). Your explanations of these and similar doctrinal inconsistencies will help us make an informed decision about your membership request.
