Having received Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord of our lives under the leadership and direction of His Holy Spirit and having been baptized as symbolic of the physical death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, as well as the spiritual death, burial, and resurrection of the believer, we do hereby enter into covenant with one another and with God as one body in Jesus Christ.
Under the direction of the Holy Spirit of God, our intent is to manifest Christian love toward one another, to work together for the progress of this church in holiness, knowledge and comfort and to promote its prosperity and spirituality.
Moreover, we agree to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines and to contribute joyfully and consistently to the support of the ministry, the church’s expenses, benevolence, and the spread of the Gospel of Christ to all nations.
We will also strive to maintain family and private devotions, to religiously educate our children in biblical precepts, to seek to win our kindred and acquaintances to faith in Jesus Christ, to walk in the Spirit of Jesus Christ as an example before others, and to avoid any behavior that might be a stumbling block for others.
We further agree that it is the privilege and responsibility of members to honor, esteem and love the pastor and staff as our spiritual leaders, to pray for them constantly and to manifest a tender regard for their reputation.
We will also remember one another in prayer, help each other in our speech and be slow to take offense but ever ready to be reconciled, remembering the rules of the Savior that in order to receive forgiveness, we must be willing to forgive.
We also agree that if we leave from this place we will, as soon as possible, unite with some other church where God’s Word is faithfully taught and preached.
