Church Covenant

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 the Son, and the Holy

Spirit, we do now, in the presence of God, and this

assembly, 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 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 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 all tattling, backbiting, and excessive anger: to

abstain from the sale of, and use of intoxicating drinks

as a beverage: to be zealous in our efforts to advance the

kingdom of our Savior.

 

We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly

love: to remember one another in prayer: to aid one

another in sickness and distress: to cultivate Christian

sympathy in feeling and Christian 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 this covenant and the

principles of God’s word.
