Remnant Church in Richmond, Virginia’s Membership Covenant and Packet

This post contains both the membership covenant and membership requirements for Bryan Laughlin’s Acts 29 Remnant Church in Richmond, Virginia.  The first one is a 28 page document from 2013, while the second is 32 pages and from 2017. As you study this you should ask the following question. Would you sign this? Why or why not? What are the issues with this covenant? Are you joining a church or are you becoming a slave in the heart of the capitol of the former Confederacy? 

“If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong.”

Abraham Lincoln 

“Now I’ve been free, I know what a dreadful condition slavery is. I have seen hundreds of escaped slaves, but I never saw one who was willing to go back and be a slave.”

Harriet Tubman 

So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law.

Galatians 5:1 NLT
