Church Covenant

Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, through repentance of sin and personal trust in the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ on Calvary, upon profession of our faith, and having been scripturally baptized by immersion, identifying with Him and the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith, and in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, we do now in the presence of God, His holy angels and assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into the 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 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 regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel to all nations.

We also engage to maintain family and secret devotions, to educate our children in the Christian faith and Baptist distinctives; to seek salvation for our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just and honest in our dealings, faithful in our engagements and exemplary of Christ in our deportment; to avoid all tattling, backbiting, and excessive anger; to abstain from the sale and use of tobacco, intoxicating beverages and other substances which be harmful to the temple of God; and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the Kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

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 speech; to be slow to take offense, but always be ready to make reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Lord, to secure it without delay and to endeavor to follow all rules and standards set and observed and practiced by the church.

We moreover engage that when we remove from this church by way of relocation, we will, as soon as possible, unite with another Independent Baptist Church of like-faith and practice, and one the will carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.
