Having been led by the Spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, having publicly professed that faith, and having been baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we do now in the presence of God most solemly and joyfully enter in this covenant with one another as one body of Christ.
We covenant, 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 give it sacred pre-eminence over all institutions of human origin; and to 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 throughout the world.
We also covenant to maintain family and personal devotions, to provide Christian education for our children, to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances, to walk circumspectly in the world, to be just in our dealing, to be faithful in our engagements, and to be exemplary in our deportment; to abstain from the sale and use of disabling substances and zealous in our efforts to advance the Kingdom of our Savior.
We further covenant 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, and to take offense slowly but always be ready for reconciliation, seeking it without delay.
We moreover covenant that when we move from this place we will as soon as possible unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.
