Having, as we trust, been brought by divine grace to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and to give up ourselves to Him, and having been baptized upon our profession of faith, in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, we do now, relying on His gracious aid, solemnly and joyfully renew our covenant with each other.
We will walk together in love, as becomes the members of a Christian church; exercising affectionate care and watchfulness over each other and faithfully admonishing one another when required (Rom 12:10; 15:14).
We will seek, by Divine aid, to live carefully in the world, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, and remembering that, as we have been voluntarily buried by baptism and raised again from the symbolic grave, so there is on us a special obligation to lead a new and holy life (Matt 28:19; Rom 6:4; Phil 2:12; 1 Thess 5:21-22; Titus 2:11-12; 1 Peter 1:14-16).
We will endeavor to bring up our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and by a pure and loving example to seek the salvation of our family and friends (Matt 28:19-20; Eph 6:4; Col 1:28-29).
We will work together for the continuance of a faithful evangelical ministry in this church, as we sustain its worship, doctrines, ordinances, and discipline. (Acts 2:41-47; Phil 1:27; 1 Thess 1:2-3; Jude 3)
We will 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 (1 Cor 16:1-2; 2 Cor 8:1-3; 9:6-7; 1 Tim 5:17-18).
We will, when we move from this place, unite with some other church as soon as possible, where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word (Heb 10:25).
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all. AMEN (2 Cor 13:14).
