CHURCH COVENANT

WE BELIEVE:

THAT THE BIBLE IS THE INSPIRED, INERRANT, AND INFALLIBLE WORD OF GOD AND IS THE BASIS FOR ANY STATEMENT OF FAITH. WE AS A BODY OF BAPTIZED BELIEVERS IN JESUS CHRIST, ARE COMMITTED TO THE STUDY AND TEACHING OF THE BIBLE, BELIEVING THAT IT IS PROFITABLE FOR TEACHING, FOR REPROOF, FOR CORRECTION AND FOR TRAINING IN RIGHTEOUSNESS, THAT BELIEVERS MAY BE EQUIPPED FOR EVERY GOOD WORK.

WE COMMIT:

TO, BY THE WORKING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD, WALK TOGETHER IN CHRISTIAN LOVE

TO STRIVE FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE CHURCH IN KNOWLEDGE AND HOLINESS

TO CONTRIBUTE, AS LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD, TO THE MINISTRY BY GIVING OF MY TIME, TALENTS AND TREASURES. TO ESTABLISH KINGDOM BUILDING CHURCHES, TO HELP THE POOR AND TO SPREAD THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

TO SUSTAIN THE CHURCHES WORSHIP, DISCIPLINE, DOCTRINE AND ORDINANCES WHICH ARE BAPTISM AND COMMUNION

TO SEEK WAYS TO MAINTAIN A DEVOTIONAL LIFE BOTH PERSONAL AND IN OUR FAMILIES, EDUCATE OUR CHILDREN IN THE TRUTH OF SCRIPTURE AND TO SEEK OUT OTHERS THAT WE CAN REACH IN OUR SPHERE OF INFLUENCE FOR THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST.

TO WALK UPRIGHTLY IN THE WORLD, BE JUST IN OUR DEALINGS IN THE WORLD, AND BE ZEALOUS IN OUR EFFORTS TO FURTHER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

TO WATCH OVER ONE ANOTHER IN BROTHERLY LOVE, REMEMBER ONE ANOTHER IN PRAYER, AID ONE ANOTHER IN SICKNESS AND DISTRESS, BE WATCHING OF OUR ATTITUDES AND SPEECH TO ONE ANOTHER, SLOW TO TAKE OFFENSE OF ONE ANOTHER, ALWAYS READY TO RECONCILE WITH ONE ANOTHER.

WE STATE:

HAVING RECEIVED JESUS CHRIST AS LORD AND SAVIOR, BY THE WORKING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

HAVING PROFESSED OUR FAITH IN GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON AND GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT, WE MOST SOLEMNLY AND JOYFULLY ENTER INTO A COVENANT WITH ONE ANOTHER, AS ONE BODY OF CHRIST.
