Church Covenant 

 

 

 

 

  Having been led, as we believe, 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 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 the 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 this church in

  knowledge and holiness; to give it a place in our affections, prayers

  and services above every organization of human origin; to sustain its

  worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrine; to contribute cheerfully

  and regularly, as God has prospered us, towards its expenses, for the support

  of a faithful and evangelical ministry among us, the relief of the poor, and

  spread of the Gospel throughout the world.  In case of difference of opinion

  in the church, we will strive to avoid a contentious spirit, and if we

  cannot unanimously agree, we will cheerfully recognize the right of the

  majority to govern.

 

  We also engage to maintain family and secret devotion; to study

  diligently the word of God; to religiously educate our children; to seek

  the salvation of our kindred and acquaintance; to walk circumspectly in

  the world; to be kind and just to those in our employ, and faithful in the

  service we promise others; endeavoring in the purity of heart and good

  will towards all men to exemplify and commend our holy faith.

 

  We further engage to watch over, to pray for, to exhort and stir up each

  other unto every good word and work; to guard each other’s reputation,

  not needlessly exposing the infirmities of others; to participate in each

  other’s joys, and with tender sympathy bear one another’s burdens and

  sorrows; to cultivate Christian courtesy; to be slow to give or take offense,

  but always ready for reconciliation, being mindful of the rules of the Savior

  in the eighteenth chapter of Matthew, to secure it without delay; and

  through life, amid evil report, and good report, to seek to live to the glory

  of God, who hath called us out of darkness into his marvelous light.

 

  When we remove from this place, we engage as soon as possible to unite

  with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant

  and the principles of God’s Word.
