Member Covenant

Having been brought by the grace of God to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and having been baptized in the Name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit, we now declare our covenant with one another.

As members of this Christian Church and by the grace of God,

  • We will make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace, choosing to love one another even as we love ourselves.

  • We will walk together in brotherly love, exercise affectionate care for one another, and faithfully encourage and exhort one another as occasion may require.

  • We will devote ourselves to gathering for preaching, fellowship, and prayer.

  • We will make every effort to bring up our children and those under our care in the discipline and instruction of the Lord, and to seek the salvation of our family and friends, by verbal witness and loving example.

  • We will rejoice at one another’s happiness and, with tenderness and sympathy, bear one another’s burdens and sorrows.

  • We will strive to live with wisdom in the world, renouncing ungodliness and worldly desires.

  • We will work together to promote a faithful gospel ministry in this church through its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines.

  • We will contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of those in need, and the spread of the Gospel to all nations.

  • We will through love serve one another, using the gifts each has received by God’s grace, in the Spirit’s power, and for Christ’s glory.

  • We will, if we move from this place, unite with some other church as soon as possible, where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all. Amen.
