Church Covenant

Having been led by the Spirit of God to profess our faith in Jesus Christ, and having been baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, we solemnly and joyfully affirm our covenant with God and with each other as one body in Christ.

We pledge to serve Christ in the fellowship of this congregation.  

We will strive, with the help 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 place it above all institutions of human origin;
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 throughout all nations.

We will strive to maintain as far as possible family and personal devotions;
To teach our children the Christian truths;
To seek the salvation of our family, friends and acquaintances;
To walk righteously in the world;
To not gossip nor harbor anger toward others;
To be honest in our dealings, faithful in our relationships, set an example by our lifestyle, and be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior.

Believing our bodies to be temples of the Holy Spirit, we will strive to avoid experiences and habits which harm or defile the body and hurt our witness.

We will strive to watch over each other in brotherly love;
To remember each other in prayer;
To help each other in sickness and distress;
To cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech;
To be slow to take offense but always be ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the instruction of our Savior to seek it without delay.

We pledge that if we move from this place, we will as soon as possible unite with another church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.
