Our Church Covenant... 

 

Having been led by the Spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, and on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we do now in the presence of God, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.

 

We engage therefore, with the help of God, to walk together in Christian love, to strive for the spiritual advancement of the church; to sustain its worship, ordinances, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to its financial support and its ministry at home and abroad.

 

We also engage to maintain family or individual devotions, to religiously educate our children, to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our commitments, and exemplary in our conduct.

 

We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Savior to secure it without delay.

 

We moreover engage that, when we remove from this place, we will as soon as possible unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word..
