Having been led, by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, and upon our profession of faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we do now in the presence of God, angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into this covenant with one another as one body in Christ.

We covenant together as a church to faithfully attend its regular services, to uphold its Confession of Faith and Constitution, to accept its discipline, to contribute regularly and cheerfully to its support, and to faithfully promote its growth.

We covenant together as Christians to walk as brothers and sisters in Christ, to remember each other in prayer, and to aid each other in sickness and in distress, thus bearing one another's burdens.

We covenant that as individuals we will walk circumspectly in the world, strive to maintain personal and family devotions, teach the Word of God to our children, and to continually work toward Christian knowledge and holiness.


We are in process!  We copied the points below in from the digital copy of our church constitution.  As we created the links for them, we realized some of the references had errors or were not the best verses for that particular point.  Some were easily repaired, such as no more than a comma misplaced or one number missing and we repaired those as we went along. 

However, some could not be easily figured out on the run, so we finished the rest of the links that appeared to be correct and went back to repair the ones that were not acceptable.  Those without Hyperlinks are questionable.  However, we realized not only the verses needed some attention and could be augmented, but there were better ways to say some of these points and often additional verses were possible.

So we decided to get several of the best constitutions we could find from churches of like precious faith and review them; keeping in mind how we could alter ours to develop it into a better document with more scriptural support. We actually found five that were very good and are working to compile what we would like to see ours state.  We have also found additional verses as we looked at the context around those offered in the other statements.

Many of our points of faith, below, have only one or two verses to back them.  Some of them only HAVE a verse or two in Scripture that directly apply, and that is fine.  However, we wanted to provide a better selection of verses for each of those points that have many verses to support them in Scripture. 

There have been many false doctrines developed based on one or two verses taken out of context.  We wanted to be able to provide enough Scripture that even the staunchest of skeptics would have to realize our stand comes directly from God's Word!  Thus any point having more references is getting some more.

We have completed the original ten sections and they are with our church board members.  There are four more sections being added on subjects that are extremely pertinent in these latter days that were not considered that pressing when the original was completed.  The board members will make suggestions and they will be voted on in a board meeting.  Once the document is completed and approved by the church board, it will be brought to the church body for a vote.  All this to say, it could be a while before the completed document is recopied here and the links established for the new verses used to support each point.

Please bear with us; we ARE working on it!  We will remove this note once we have all of the changes completed and the updated document loaded on this page!  Thanks for your patience!  God bless!
