Having been brought by divine grace to embrace Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, and having been reconciled to God through Christ, we faithfully enter into covenant with one another as one body in Christ.
Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we seek
-to walk together in Christian love, exercising care and watchfulness over each other;
-to participate faithfully in the worship services of this church and support its evangelical witness with our prayers, time, talents and financial resources as God has prospered us;
-to be faithful stewards of all that God has entrusted to us, body, soul, mind and possessions;
-to maintain personal and family worship and nurture our children and those within our care in the love and service of Jesus Christ; and
- to conduct ourselves in the world with love, justice and integrity so that our daily lives will be a good example and bring honor to Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Bible is the written Word of God and our authority in matters of faith and Christian living, and we affirm Baptism and the Lord’s Supper as ordinances designed by Christ to be observed by his disciples.
As members of the body of Jesus Christ we affirm the principles of this covenant and will strive to live out its tenets. Should we move from this place we will seek to unite with another church where we can carry out the spirit of the covenant the principles of God’s Word.
