In furtherance of the Church’s belief that God calls all of His people to serve as ministers ordained to specific good works. He has created and empowered us to perform in a spirit of unity and commitment to the Word of God, the members of the Church individually and jointly adopt the following covenant of members:
Having each been individually led by the Holy Spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord and, on the profession of our faith in Christ, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we do now, in the presence of God, and this assembly, solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another.
We will walk together in Christian love and in the power of the Holy Spirit to advance the gospel of Jesus Christ, to strive for the success in the Church’s ministries, in knowledge of His Truth, in holiness, and to promote the spiritual growth and impact of this Church and its members.
We will sustain the Church’s worship, ordinances and discipline. We will be good stewards of our earthly possessions by cheerfully and regularly supporting its ministries underwriting its ministerial and operating expenses, the relief of the poor, and the evangelistic outreach for the spread of the gospel to those who do not have a personal relationship with Christ in the United States and all nations.
We will strive to maintain family and private devotional Bible studies and prayer: to educate our children in our Christian biblical faith: to seek the salvation of our family and acquaintances: to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, exemplary in our deportment; and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior.
We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember one another in prayer; to aid one another in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and Christian courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense and always ready for reconciliation.
