Having been led as we believe, by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, and upon the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son, and the Holy Spirit, we do now, in the presence of God the Creator of the Universe, most solemnly yet joyfully enter this covenant together as one body in Christ. We promise, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk together in Christian love: to strive for advancement of this church, in knowledge, holiness and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spiritually to sustain its worship, ordinance, discipline and doctrines, to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expense of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel through all nations. We also promise to maintain family and personal devotions; to educate our children in the Christian Faith, to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances: to walk upright in the world: to be honest in our dealings, and exemplary in our behavior: to avoid all gossip, slander, and excessive anger; and to abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage or anything which demoralizes the individual.
We further promise 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 our character and courtesy in our speech: to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Savior to secure it without delay.
We promise that when we remove from this place, we will, as soon as possible, unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of the covenant that involves the principles of God’s Word.
