Covenant

Covenant

Having received Jesus Christ as our Savior, and having followed Him in believer’s baptism, we are joyfully entering into a covenant between one another, as the Body of Christ.

We covenant, by God’s grace and the aid of the Holy Spirit, to grow in the grace and the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is our sincere desire to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, minds, souls, and strength, and to love our neighbors as ourselves. We intend to meet for corporate worship, observe God’s holy ordinances, adhere to the doctrines of the Bible, and practice loving church discipline. We will give cheerfully to the church for the glory of God, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel throughout all of the world.

We covenant to train our children in the Word of God by consistently teaching them about God. We will seek to live holy lives according to the Scriptures so that God might receive all the glory, and his Kingdom might spread throughout all of the world.

We covenant to pray for one another, to serve one another in love, and exhibit the Fruit of the Spirit toward one another in speech and action which is: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. When we are sinned against we will be slow to take offense and always ready to reconcile without delay.

Moreover, we covenant that when we leave this congregation we will, as soon as possible, unite with some other congregation that preaches the Word of God.
