Church Covenant

Having been brought by divine grace to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and give up ourselves to him, and upon the profession of our faith, in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, we do now, relying upon His gracious aid, solemnly and joyfully enter into this covenant with each other.

We will, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, walk in Christian love; doing our best to advance the church, in knowledge, holiness.

We will push one another to grow spiritually in the Gospel as we sustain our worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrine.

We will contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel to all nations.

 We will maintain family and personal devotions, to religiously educate our children, seeking the salvation of our family and friends.

We will work and pray for the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together. Watching over one another in brotherly love; remembering one another in prayer; aiding one another in sickness and distress; cultivating Christian sympathy in feeling and Christians courtesy in speech; slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation.

We will seek, by Divine aid, to live carefully in the world, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, and remembering that as we have been voluntarily buried by baptism and raised again from the symbolic grave, so there is on us a special obligation now to lead a new and a holy life.

We will, when we move from this place, unite with another church, as soon as possible, where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all. Amen
