Having been led as we believe by the Spirit of God, to receive The Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, and on profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we do now in the presence of God, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter in covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.
We strive together to grow as disciples of Christ. We will focus our hearts and minds on God in order to be transformed inside out. We will hold each other accountable as we become mature people, fully developed like Christ.
We will love one another and lift each other up in prayer. We will be honest in our speech and actions at all times. We will be careful not to let our actions make those who are weak in the faith fall into sin.
We will overcome evil with good. We will bless those who persecute us, we will rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.
We will live our everyday lives as an offering to God. We will embrace what God does for us and give thanks to Him for His blessings.
