Church Covenant

 


 

 

This Church adopts the Holy Bible, King James Version, as our rule in our faith, practice and methods of operation. No Bylaw or procedure shall ever outweigh the Scriptures.

 


 

 

 


This Church adopts the Baptist Church Covenant as follows:

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 covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.

 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, discipline, and doctrines; 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.

 We also engage to maintain family and secret devotion; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; 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.

 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 our Savior to secure it without delay.

We moreover engage that when we remove 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.

    Passion Groups

    This month, we will embark on a new journey that will encourage us to have a deeper and greater passion for Christ and for our neighbor. It is my prayer for this to be a time of spiritual growth and encouragement. The teaching will relevant. The environment will be laid back. And the fellowship will be sweet. I am hoping that discussion will break out each week as we lift one another up and prepare ourselves for the upcoming week. These groups will meet every 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month at 6pm and will be grouped according to age. The first groups will be our teens. Bro. Rick will head this group up (13-20) I will head up the middle group (21-49). Bro James will be in charge of those. 50+. For our first meeting, we will meet briefly at the church to make sure everyone knows what is happening and then we will break out into our groups.
