Our Promise To Each Other As Members
We, having been saved by the sovereign grace of God through Jesus Christ, and baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit , do, in the presence of God and this assembly, covenant together to serve Him as one body in Christ Jesus.
We covenant, by the help of the Holy Spirit, to love one another as commanded in Holy Scriptures by faithfully praying for each other and by helping and comforting each other in times of distress and sickness. We covenant together to pursue peace and unity within the church body above our own individual preferences by being slow to anger and quick to forgive.
We agree to use our spiritual gifts to build up, support, strengthen, and serve the body of Christ. We promise to faithfully attend and adhere to the corporate prayer, worship, ordinances, doctrines and authority of this church as laid down in the inspired Word of God.
As members of this Body of Christ we commit ourselves to financially contributing cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry of this church: her expenses, and her efforts against sin and injustice in the world, the help of the poor and disadvantaged, and the spread of the gospel throughout the nations.
We covenant, by the help of the Holy Spirit, to uphold Christ in our homes and to pursue a regular, private devotional life with the Lord. We also covenant to teach our children the truths of the gospel and to train them in how to live a holy life pleasing to God.
We covenant, by the help of the Holy Spirit, to advance the Kingdom of God through a loving witness to relatives, friends and all people by sharing with them the salvation found in Jesus Christ and by striving to live a holy and blameless life before them.
Having made these promises to each other we agree that we will not easily separate ourselves from this church. However, should we have to leave this community of believers, we agree to search out quickly another church in whose fellowship we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.
