Praise to our gracious God! He has caused us to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, our great treasure. In dependence on the Lord, we now make (renew) this covenant with each other.
We will submit to the authority of Scripture as the final word on all matters of life and doctrine.
We will regularly assemble together to worship God and to show Christian love and unity.
We will pursue the spiritual growth of the body through prayer, encouragement, and holiness.
We will defend and maintain a Christ-exalting ministry in this church by upholding the faithful preaching of the Bible, the right administration of the Lord’s Supper and baptism, and the exercise of church discipline.
We will cheerfully and regularly support the ministry of the church and the relief of the poor through prayer, financial offerings, and service.
We will watch over each other by speaking the truth in love and being godly examples.
We will love each other deeply through affectionate care, genuine forgiveness, and patient endurance.
We will raise our children in the training and instruction of the Lord, and sincerely seek the salvation of our family and friends.
We will live before the watching world in a manner worthy of the gospel: speaking truth, seeking justice and mercy, demonstrating faithfulness and self-control.
We will proclaim the gospel in our homes, our neighborhoods, and to the ends of the earth as the Lord enables us.
We will when moving from this place, unite with another church where we will 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.
