our Covenant

CHURCH COVENANT

Having been brought by Divine Grace to accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, we do now solemnly covenant with one another to walk together in church relationship, with brotherly love, and we do in his strength engage:-

That we will exercise a Christian care and watchfulness over one another;

That we will participate in one another’s joys, and endeavor with tenderness and sympathy to bear one another’s burdens;

That we will endeavor to be regular and faithful in attendance upon Divine Services, especially the Sunday morning church service and communion;

That we will contribute cheerfully, regularly and according as God does prosper us, to the financial support of the Church, and to the various objects of benevolence for the spread of the gospel at home and abroad;

That if we should remove from this place we will unite as soon as possible with some other church, or if for sufficient reason we retain our membership here, we will communicate with the church at least once in every year and in all ways so far us we may be able, fulfill our covenant obligations;

That we will endeavor to bring up such as at any time may be under our care in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and to win our kindred and our acquaintances to the Saviour, to Holiness and to Eternal Life;

That we will seek by prayer and reverent study of the Bible to learn God’s will and to govern our lives according to the teachings of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ;

And that through life, amidst evil report and good report, we will seek to live to the glory of Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light
