Our Covenant

“Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior; and, on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, we do now, in the presence of God, angels and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body In Christ.”


For the Advancement of This Church
“We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement: of this church, in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, disciplines, and doctrines.”


As Christian Stewards
“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 through all nations.”


Alone and at Home
“We also engage to maintain family and secret devotions; to religiously educate our children to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances.”


Before the World
“To walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportment; to avoid all tattling, backbiting, and excessive anger; to abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage, and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior.”


Toward One Another
“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 sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Savior, to secure it without delay.”


When We Move
“We moreover engage, that when we move 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 the principles of God’s word.”
