Church Covenant

Adopted 1982 ~ Revised 2007

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 the Son, and the Holy Spirit, we do now in the presence of God and the angels 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 the church in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to uphold its sacred preeminence over all institutions of human origin; and to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, to the expenses of the church, to the relief of the poor, and to the propagation of the gospel.


We also engage to maintain family and personal devotions; to "bring (our children) up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord" (Proverbs 22:6); 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 adhere to the admonition, "Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you with all malice; and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you" (Ephesians 4:31,32); to reject every form of worldliness; and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the Gospel of our Savior.


We further engage to 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 and courtesy of speech; and to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation and mindful of the rules of our Savior to seek it without delay.


We, moreover, engage that when we remove from this place, we will unite as soon as possible with another like-minded church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.
