As those who have been brought to repent and believe in Jesus Christ by the grace of God, being united to Him by His Spirit we now solemnly and joyfully covenant with one another.
We will work and pray for the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
We will, by God’s grace, forsake the paths of sin, and walk in the ways of holiness all the days of our lives, striving together for the advancement of this church in knowledge, holiness, and comfort.
We will regularly gather together, engaging in gospel community, rejoicing with each other’s happiness, and bearing one another’s burdens and sorrows.
We will pray for each other and provide help to those in our midst who are in need.
We will pursue the Lord Jesus Christ through the ordinary means of grace and will encourage the same in one another.
We will bring up those under our care in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and, by a pure and loving example, seek the salvation of our family and friends.
We will live carefully and honorably before the world, remembering that as we have been voluntarily buried through baptism and raised again in Christ, so there is on us a special obligation to lead a new and holy life.
We will lovingly guard one another from the deceitfulness of sin, giving and receiving admonition in humility and affection.
We will bear patiently with one another, diligently pursuing biblical reconciliation.
We will work together to promote a faithful gospel ministry in this church, as we sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines. We will contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry of this church for the spread of the gospel through all nations.
Should we leave this church, we will seek another church where we can carry out the principles of God’s Word as followers of our Lord Jesus Christ.
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all. Amen.
