Our Covenant

Having been brought by the grace of God to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and having been baptized upon our profession of faith, in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit, we do now, in the presence of God and this assembly, solemnly and joyfully renew our covenant with each other.

We will endeavor to …

  • Attend worship faithfully, unless providentially hindered.
  • Work and pray for unity of spirit within the body of Christ.
  • Practice Christian courtesy in speech, attitude, & action, avoiding gossip and slander, being slow to take offense and quick to seek reconciliation.
  • Walk together in brotherly love, aiding one another in sickness and distress, restoring one another when entangled in sin.
  • Support and care for the church’s ministries and members by cheerfully offering prayer, service, and financial support.
  • Preserve the doctrine and the purity of the church.
  • Model Christian discipleship within the home through maintaining private & family devotions.
  • Witness for the Lord Jesus Christ by living a transformed life and sharing the gospel as God gives opportunity.
  • Recognize congregational authority within the church in matters of membership and discipline.
  • Unite with some other church, as soon as possible, if we move from this place, 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.
