Church Covenant

 

Having trusted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and baptized upon our profession of faith, we do now, relying on his grace, solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another as one body in Christ.

 

Powerful :: We commit, with the aid of the Holy Spirit, to powerfully represent Jesus Christ to our world; seeking the salvation of our family, friends, neighbors and enemies; incarnating God’s justice and mercy on behalf and for those in need; pursuing the Biblical mandate to spread the Gospel to the ends of the earth, through missions, church partnerships and church planting.

 

Community ::  We commit, with the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love;  not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together; exercising an affectionate care and watchfulness over each other; and being slow to take offense but purposefully seeking reconciliation.

 

Worship :: We commit, with the aid of the Holy Spirit, to worship and enjoy God above all else;  striving for the continuing Gospel ministry in this church by its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; pursuing personal and family holiness through the consistent practice of spiritual disciplines, the pursuit of Godward affections and the battle against sin; ministering together through the fervent use of our energy and time, gifts and abilities, possessions and wealth.

 

We commit the preceding before God and one another. And we entreat God to use this covenant to spur us on toward holiness and protect us from individual and corporate sin.  When we move from this place we will, if possible, unite with a like minded church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant. 

 

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all.  Amen.
