Having experienced God’s grace, acceptance, forgiveness, redemption, and call to discipleship and united in the faith that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, revealed in history, disclosed in the Scriptures, and experienced in human life through the Holy Spirit, we do solemnly and joyfully covenant with God and one another to:

  • Acknowledge Jesus Christ as the head of the church and as the pattern for life and all of its relationships;
  • Live together in love as He commanded;
  • Express our oneness in Christ so that our differences do not divide us but rather increase our understanding, broaden our perspectives, and strengthen our love;
  • Bear one another’s burdens and share each other’s joys;
  • Pray for one another, encourage one another, and counsel and admonish one another as the occasion may require;
  • Participate in the regular assemblies of the church for worship, nurture, and fellowship to celebrate God’s glory, remember His grace, and be strengthened for our mission;
  • Give ourselves to prayer, the study of God’s word, and other means of devotion that we may better discern God’s will and activity in the world;
  • Be faithful stewards of our time, influence, talents, and possessions offering ourselves and our resources for the support of the church and its ministries and God’s work in the world;
  • Establish and maintain a Christian atmosphere in our homes and, if we are blessed with children, to teach and nurture them in the faith;
  • Live an exemplary moral life worthy of our calling, bringing our faith to bear on all our personal and corporate involvements including our vocation, relationships, decisions, and activities;
  • Minister to human need recognizing the infinite worth of every person and with a concern for the whole person;
  • Seek to share our faith as opportunities arise and, with God’s help, so live that others, seeing the joy of Christian living, may also seek to know Jesus Christ as Lord.
