Why a Covenant?

As we have been moving forward in our first series on church membership, Our Family, many of you have been asking great questions.  Why do we need a covenant?  Is membership biblical?  Is it normative for all Christians to be members of a local church family?  Is a covenant like a contract?  As usual, John Piper and Desiring God have been great resources for us.  By clicking on the link below, you can read or listen to a series on membership and covenants that John Piper gave years ago to his church, Bethlahem Baptist.
