Church Covenant

Confessing our faith in God the Father, who has made Himself known to us through His Son Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, and believing that He has called us together in the fellowship of His Holy Spirit, we do now make this covenant with God and with one another.

We will be faithful in worship, gathering with the church family to celebrate God's Presence, to experience His Word, and to remember His grace.

We will commit ourselves to Christian growth through a diligent study of the Scriptures and regular prayer.

We will be responsible stewards of all we are and all we have, giving time, influence, and resources to the support of the church and its ministries.

We will encourage one another in love and good works, and through ministries of prayer and presence will share one another's burdens and joys.

We will be a servant Church, following the example of our Lord, and will bear witness to His grace in word and in deed.

We will seek God's help in striving to so live in this community and the world that others may be drawn to our Savior and Lord.

We will call God's people wherever we are, living for the glory of Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.
