As an expression of Christian unity, the Church presents the following Covenant – Amos 3:3
Having been led as we believe by the Spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Lord and 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 and this assembly most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another as one body in Christ.
We fully realize that the strength to uphold this covenant comes from the grace of God our Father, the shed blood of God the Son, and the power of the indwelling of God the Holy Spirit.
We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk together in Christian love, to strive for the advancement of the Church in knowledge, holiness, and compassionate endeavors.
We promise to promote the prosperity and spirituality of the Church, to sustain its worship, ordinances, doctrines, and discipline as defined in the Articles of Faith.
We promise to contribute cheerfully and regularly in bodily acts, and in tithe, in support of the Church, for the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Lords holy gospel to all nations, and to all mankind.
We further promise to faithfully attend the Church’s worship services (in person, or by video, or by audio, as we have a widespread following), to maintain personal spiritual disciplines, to teach our children the Word of God, to be just in our dealings and faithful in our engagements.
We understand it is proper to be slow to take offense, and to always be ready for reconciliation, that we should be mindful of the will of our Savior to secure it without delay.
We promise that we will love and pray for each other, and in times of distress to help one another. We will endeavor to obey the commandments of our Lord Jesus and to abstain from anything that would cause our fellow brother or sister in Christ to stumble or that will bring reproach to the name of Jesus Christ, or to the Church.
The aforementioned Covenant shall govern the Church, as a body of Christ, to guide our fellowship with each other in our spiritual journey with the Lord, our God.
