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 THIS ASSEMBLY, MOST SOLEMNLY AND JOYFULLY ENTER INTO THE 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 TO THE SUPPORT OF THE MINISTRY, THE EXPENSES OF THE CHURCH, THE RELIEF OF THE POOR, AND THE SPREAD OF THE GOSPEL THROUGH ALL NATIONS.

WE ALSO ENGAGE TO MAINTAIN FAMILY AND SECRET DEVOTIONS; TO RELIGIOUSLY EDUCATE OUR CHILDREN; TO SEEK SALVATION OF OUR KINDRED AND ACQUAINTANCES; 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; AND TO BE ZEALOUS IN OUR EFFORTS TO ADVANCE THE KINGDOM OF OUR SAVIOR.
