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 Spirit; we do now, in the presence of God, angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into a covenant with one another, as one body in Christ, to promote and sustain the Church’s worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrine.
Because we are committed to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and because we esteem His Church and each other, we covenant that we will be led by Christ, who is our only Lord. We will, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, strive for the advancement of this church in knowledge, holiness, and Christian love.
We will worship Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We will actively seek to help our families and those around us become Christians and will set a worthy example before them in both word and deed. We will walk circumspectly in the world and be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our conduct.
We will stand by one another in good times and bad, remember each other in prayer and aid each other in sickness and distress. We will love each other even when we disagree with one another. We will be slow to take offense, always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Savior to secure reconciliation and forgiveness without delay. We will support our Church with our prayers, labor, attendance, and financial resources. We will also seek to extend the Church’s ministry around the world through missionary efforts.
