Church Covenant:

Having been led, as we believe, to accept Jesus Christ as our Savior, and, on a profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, we do now solemnly and joyfully covenant with one another. That, aided by the Holy Spirit, we will walk together in brotherly love, with Christian sympathy and kindness; exercise a Christian care and watchfulness over one another, and tenderly and faithfully admonish and help as may be needful; faithful in our engagements; cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech; participate in one another's joys; bear one another's burdens and sorrows; be slow to take offence and always ready for reconcillation; That we will not neglect the services of the church, and will habitually observe secret prayer and the reading of the Scriptures, earnestly seeking therein the help of the Holy Spirit; That we will strive for the advancement of this church in all its spiritual and temporal interests, and will sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines; that, according to our ability, we will contribute regularly to its support and ministries, particularly in the spread of the gospel at home and abroad; and that we will endeavor to lead to Christ our friends and acquaintances; That we will co-operate with other churches, and Christian agencies in the fight against all organized and unorganized evils; That in case of removal from this place we will, as soon as possible, unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant; And through life, amidst evil report and good report, we will seek to live to the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
