A discernment exercise from a previous Evangelical Free Church in Southern California for readers to analyze and examine. In this post you can read and study Del Rey Church’s membership application, questionnaires and membership covenant.
“Finding good players is easy. Getting them to play as a team is another story.”
“I can’t afford to be a member of a golf course.”
Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.
Acts 17:11 NIV

I have another post that is getting reviewed just to get thoughts on it. In the meantime I have another discernment post I would like to do. This one is a doozy. I actually wrote about Del Rey Church previously at The Wondering Eagle. You can read about it in “Del Rey Church in Playa del Rey, California Doesn’t Want You to Join their Church, Lets Examine an Acts 29 Statement; Plus Tim Challies is Whining Again!!” Matt Jones is the Pastor of Preaching and Vision at Del Rey Church. There are a number of issues I would like to write about in regards to this church and the Evangelical Free Church of America and the growing problem of Neo-Calvinism in the future.
I am going to ask you to review the membership application, spiritual and life journey questionnaires, and the theology questionnaire. I have scanned them all in below for you to read. This is one of the most legalistic covenants and questionnaires that I have found so far in the Evangelical Free Church of America. That is impressive since I looked at close to 600 or so churches! I put the polygraph scene from Meet the Parents because I felt it fit nicely with the questionnaires that Del Rey Church added. But form the Danvers Statement to having to provide your employment history I wanted to single this church out again and let those of you who read this to weigh in on this document. Again guys please know that I love you!
