Church Covenant

On the first Sunday of each month, our congregation invites all true disciples of Jesus Christ to receive the Lord's Supper after a hearing of our church covenant. This covenant promise that we make before God serves to remind us of our shared commitment to each other as the body of Christ:

"Having been led 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 the Holy Spirit, we do now solemnly make this covenant with each other as one body in Christ.

We will walk together in brotherly love; we will exercise a Christian care and watchfulness over each other, will faithfully admonish and help one another as the need may be. We will be slow to take offense, but always be ready for reconciliation without delay. If any stray from the path of truth, we will endeavor to restore them in the spirit of meekness. We will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, or neglect to pray for ourselves or others. We will seek to educate our children in the Scriptures. We will seek to win our kindred and acquaintances to Christ and to holiness. As stewards of the Lord, we will aid in the support of a faithful evangelical ministry among us and in efforts to preach the gospel to the whole human family. We will live circumspectly in the world, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, and, according to our ability and opportunities, we will do good to all men. We will endeavor, as long as we live, to glorify Him who hath called us out of the darkness into His marvelous light.
