Our Beliefs

• By what common and gracious experience do we enter into spiritual fellowship and covenant relations with God and with one another?

Having been led, as we believe, by the spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, 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 this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.


• What is the great bond of our union with God and with each other?

We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk together in Christian love.


• What are our great privileges and duties in this our own church?

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.


• What vows do we gladly make as stewards of that which God has entrusted to us?

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 all nations.


• For the sake of our homes and our loved ones, what gracious task do we humbly assume?

We also engage to maintain family and secret devotion; to educate religiously our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances.


• For the sake of the unsaved for whom our Savior died to what manner of life and conversation are we solemnly and sincerely pledged?

To walk circumspectly in the world; to be kind and just to those in our employ, and faithful in the service we promise others; endeavoring in the purity of heart and good will towards all men to exemplify and commend our holy faith.


• Since one is our master, even Christ, and we are all brethren, by what fraternal ministries are we to strengthen each other and adorn the teachings of our Lord and Savior?

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 Savior to seek it without delay.


• For the continuity of our spiritual life, what further promise do we solemnly make?

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 the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s word.
