United by the grace of God, we, the members of this church, declare our adherence to the doctrines and teachings of the New Testament and state our mission to be as follows:
- To maintain the worship of God
- To study and practice Christian discipleship
- To promote and advance evangelism at home and throughout the world, and
- To promote personal Christian growth.
Having been led by the Spirit of God to profess our faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and having been baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, we do now solemnly and joyfully affirm our covenant with God and with each other.
We pledge to serve Christ in the fellowship of this congregation. With the help of the Holy Spirit we shall endeavor to love one another, to share in each other’s joys and sorrows, to remember each other in prayer, and to minister to each other in times of need. We aspire to be a fellowship where seekers may find meaning for their lives, where the lost may find Jesus Christ, where sinners may find pardon, and where all who come may find welcome. We strive to be dedicated church members through faithful attendance, study, and giving.
We shall seek to be obedient to Christ in our daily living. Through our attitudes and actions we will reflect God’s Holy Spirit working and dwelling within us. Because our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, we shall endeavor to avoid experiences and habits which defile the body and hinder our witness.
We shall pray and labor for a spirit of unity among all who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
Believing that the church is a redemptive and witnessing community, we commit ourselves to the mission of discipling the world. Being ministers of God’s reconciling love, we shall endeavor to break down barriers of hostility and distrust.
Acknowledging our human frailties and confessing our need for forgiveness, we commit our lives to Jesus Christ, and through Him to the grace and mercy of Almighty God. Amen
