Church Covenant

Having been led, as we believe, by divine grace to embrace the Lord Jesus Christ, and by the influence of His spirit to give ourselves up to Him so we do now solemnly covenant with each other that, God enabling us, we will walk together in brotherly love;

That we will exercise a Christian care and watchfulness over each other, as the case shall require;

That we will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together for worship, nor omit the duty of prayer, both for ourselves and for others, and will not neglect Bible reading and study;

That we will participate in each other’s joys, and endeavor with tenderness and sympathy to bear each other’s burdens and sorrows;

That we will earnestly endeavor to bring up such as may be under our care in the nurture and admonition of the Lord;

That we will seek divine aid to enable us to walk circumspectly and watchfully in the world, denying ungodliness and every worldly lust;

That we will strive together, insofar as God prospers us, for the support of a faithful evangelical ministry among ourselves, and for the spread of the Gospel unto the ends of the earth;

That we will endeavor by example and effort to win other souls to Christ;

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;

And that through life, amidst evil report and good report, we will seek to live to the glory of Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.
