Church Covenant

Having be 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 Ghost, we do now in the presence of God, angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, 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 unity; 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 personal devotion; to Biblically educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be exemplary in our conduct; to avoid anything that would defile the body or hinder our personal relationship with the Lord since the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit.

We further engage to watch over one another in brother love; to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to be slow to take offense; always ready for reconciliation without delay; being mindful of the principles of God’s Word.

We moreover engage that, if we move from this place, we will, as soon as possible, unite with some other Church of like faith, where we can carry out the principles of God’s Word.
