PASTOR JOHNSON'S 1ST SUNDAY MESSAGE 1.7.18

Posted by: Shirley Smith on Mon, Jan 8, 2018

"CHURCH COVENANT"

CHURCH COVENANT

 

 Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour, and on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, we do now in the presence of God, angels, and the assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.

 We engage therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this church, in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, and the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel through all nations.

 We also engage to maintain family and secret devotion; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportment; to avoid all tattling, backbiting, and excessive anger; to abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage, and be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Saviour.

 We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Saviour to secure it without delay.

 We moreover engage that when we remove from this place, we will as soon as possible unite with some other church, where we can carry out to the spirit of the covenant and the principles of God’s Word.
