Our Covenant
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.
