Officially, maybe, but as I said earlier, I did ask an house leader only a couple of years ago and he said that they didn't believe that anyone who had made a covenant owuld ever be called away by God, so that anyone who chose to leave had to be doing so against God's calling for them.

That isn't as explicit as saying people are damned if they leave, but it is a subtle message to members that to leave is to be in rebellion against God.
