About Us

Our Covenant

As we have been led by the Holy Spirit to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, professing our faith and receiving baptism, so we do most solemnly and joyfully before our Heavenly Father covenant with each other:

That we will walk together in Christian love;

That we will exercise Christian care and watchfulness over each other, and be faithful in prayer, both for ourselves and others;

That we will share in each other's joys, and with tenderness and sympathy bear each others burdens and sorrows;

That we will maintain family and private devotion, commit ourselves to spiritual growth, and strive to bring up all who are or may be under our care in the teaching, discipline, and love of the Lord;

That we will seek divine strength to enable us to live uprightly and watchfully in the world, rejecting all forms of both individual and corporate ungodliness;

That we will faithfully gather together for worship and Bible study and together support an evangelical ministry among us and throughout the world;

That we will strive by example and effort to bring others to Christ;

That if we move 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;

And through life, in both evil report and good report, seek to live to the glory of God who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.
