Membership is important to any church. Accountability, commitment, preserving the purpose of Bull Creek Cowboy Church, sense of belonging, protecting the believers and making decisions are important factors to consider before joining as a member of this church.
What Denomination Are We?
We are inter-denominational – all are welcome. We associate with the American Fellowship of Cowboy Churches. We are a stand-alone church.
Pastor > Elders > Lay Pastors
Elder led, not elder ruled.
We are a team driven church.
You must be a member of the church to be a voting member of a team. You can help on any team without being a church member. Teams have voting members to make decisions. Voting members rotate. Decisions are made by consensus, not by majority vote. If a consensus cannot be reached, then the item is tabled for more prayer. If no decision can be made within the voting members, elders will help make the final decision.
Baptism is an act of obedience – it is a public confession of Christ. If you are saved in this church, we will baptize you by immersion. Immersion is a symbol of Christ’s death and resurrection. You die to yourself and are raised a new person in Christ. Your sins are washed away. If you have been baptized in another faith, we will ask you if you have been baptized like Christ. Your answer is between you and God. Baptism does not save you. It is something you will want to do for Christ after you are saved.
The Lord’s supper is open table. It helps keep the memory of what Christ did for us alive for all generations and helps us to anticipate His coming.
It is a duty and privilege of Christians to participate in telling others about Christ through your actions, words and giving.
