Our Covenant

Having, as we trust, been brought by God’s grace to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and to give ourselves to him, and having been baptized on our profession of faith, in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit, we do now, relying on His strength, solemnly and joyfully renew our covenant with each other.

We will work and pray for the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
We will walk together as members of a Christian Church in brotherly love, exercise a loving care and watchfulness over each other and faithfully encourage and warn one another as occasion may require.
We will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, nor neglect to pray for ourselves and others.
We will endeavour to raise those under our care, in the nurture and teaching of the Lord, and by a pure and loving example seek the salvation of our family and friends.
We will rejoice at each other’s happiness and endeavour with tenderness and sympathy to bear each other’s burdens and sorrows.
We will seek, with God’s help, to live godly lives in the world, denying ungodliness and worldly desires, and remembering that, as we have been buried and raised in baptism with Christ by faith, we are obligated to lead a new and holy life.
We will work together for the continuance of a faithful evangelical 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, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel through all nations.
We will, when we move from this place, 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.
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all.
