Church Covenant

  • Having been led, as we believe, by the Holy Spirit of God to receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and having been baptized in accordance with Christ’s command, we do now in the presence of God and our fellow members solemnly enter into covenant with one another as one body in Christ.
  • To engage ourselves in prayer, worship, and the study of the Scriptures that we may grow in the image of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
  • To remember our redemption in Christ; to pray for one another and serve one another in Christian love; to forgive, even as we have been forgiven of God; to seek reconciliation, according to Christ’s command.
  • To serve this Church with our time, talents, and possessions; to sustain the Church’s worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the Church’s ministry as God prospers us.
  • To establish a proper example before our families at all times; to endeavor to maintain family and personal devotions.
  • To walk uprightly before the world with dignity, courage, and integrity so that the light of God may shine through our lives before all men, encouraging them to seek Him who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Therefore, we shall not indulge in those things which might contribute to the moral or physical deterioration of ourselves, of our fellowship or of our community, (including the misuse of intoxicating beverages and the illicit use of drugs.)
  • We further covenant together that, when we move 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.
  • Believing in a loving, sovereign God, and believing in the deity of our Savior, His miraculous birth, His peerless life, His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His promised return to consummate history, and our essential oneness with others of like faith, we shall seek to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. May God help us in these resolves.
