Church Covenant


What We Believe

 

Having been led, so 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, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, we do now, in the presence of God and angels, 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 it’s prosperity and spirituality; to sustain it’s worship, ordinance, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, and expense 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 the 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 tattling, backbiting, and excessive anger, to abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drink as a beverage; and to zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior.

 

We further engage t 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 remove from this place, we will as soon as possible unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of the covenant and principles of God’s Word.

 

And now unto Him, Who brought again from the dead, our Lord Jesus, be Power, and Glory Forever.

 

Amen!
