Church Covenant (1828)

We avow God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, to be the object of our supreme affection, and our portion forever.

We acknowledge Jesus Christ to be our Lord and Redeemer; and the Holy Spirit to be our Sanctifier, Comforter, and Guide.

We choose the Word of God to be our rule, and the people of God to be our people.

We dedicate ourselves, soul and body, time and talents, powers and possessions to the service of God.

We promise that, grace assisting, we will observe the commandments and ordinances of God, seek the honor and interest of His kingdom; and henceforth, denying all ungodliness and every worldly lust, live soberly, righteously, and godly in the world.

We covenant with this church to submit to its rules of government and discipline; to strive earnestly for its purity, peace, and edification; to walk with its members in charity, and faithfulness; to attend diligently upon its services, and to aid in maintaining its worship and in diffusing its influence for good.

We engage, also, to hold and promote cordial fellowship with the members of sister Churches of the Common Head, that the Lord may be one, and His name one, in His Churches throughout all generations to His eternal glory in Jesus Christ.
