OUR CHURCH COVENANT

Having been led by the Holy Spirit to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour and having been baptised in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and, by the profession of our faith, we hereby in the presence of God, angels and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another as one body in Christ as follows:

  1. by the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this Church in knowledge and holiness; to promote its unity and to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines;
  2. to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the Church, the relief of the poor and the spreading of the gospel to all nations;
  3. to maintain family and private devotions, to educate our children in the Christian faith and to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances;
  4. to obey the command of our Lord Jesus Christ to love our God with all our heart, mind and strength and to love our neighbours as ourselves, and to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements and exemplary in all our conduct; and
  5. to watch over one another in brotherly love, to remember each other in prayer, to aid one another in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling, courtesy in speech, to be slow to take offence and always ready for reconciliation and, mindful of the teachings of our Saviour, to secure it without delay.
  6. to guard the purity of the Church by adhering to the biblical doctrines set forth in the Articles of Faith and the Word of God;
  7. to pledge that when we move from this place, we will as soon as possible affiliate with another church where we can continue to carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.
