Church Covenant

Church Covenant

Having been led as we believe, 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, angels and the assembly most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another as one body in Christ.

We engage therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk together in Christian love;

To strive for the advancement of this church, in knowledge, holiness and comfort;

To promote its prosperity and spirituality; To sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines.

To contribute cheerfully and regularly for the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor and the spread of the gospel through all nations;

To maintain family and personal devotions; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and

To walk circumspectly in the world, to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements and exemplary in our deportment.

To avoid all tattling, backbiting and excessive anger;

To be an effective steward of one’s body by abstaining  from anything that may affect its normal function
and its testimony as God’s holy temple;

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 move from this place, we will as soon as possible unite with some other church (of similar faith),

where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word. Amen.

Vision: To see equipped members fulfilling the Great Commission.
