What We Believe

CHURCH COVENANT

What We Believe

Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God,to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour, and on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father,and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, we do now in presence of God, angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into 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, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship,ordinances,discipline,and doctrines;to contribute cheerfully and reguarly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel through all nations.

WE ALSO ENGAGE to maintain family and secret devotion; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and aquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, exemplary in our deportment; to avoid all tattling,backbiting, and excessive anger; to abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drink as a beverage, and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Saviour.

WE FURTHER ENGAGE to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Saviour, to secure it without delay.

WE MOREOVER ENGAGE that, when we remove from this place,we will as soon as possible unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's word.

 
Scripture of the Week
"Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: 'Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you. You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people.
Exodus 31:13-14
