Having been brought by God’s sovereign grace to turn from our sin and trust in our Savior, Jesus Christ; having been baptized by immersion upon our profession of faith; and having entered into membership with this assembly as a sacred fellowship; we the members of Bible Baptist Church solemnly and joyfully renew our covenant with each other.
We will value corporate worship by not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together. We will worship Him reverently, fervently, and sincerely. We will lift high His Word and honor it as our only rule of faith and practice. We will support His work through this local gathering of believers with joyful, consistent, generous offerings and by cheerfully submitting to those whom He has placed in spiritual leadership. We will pray for the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (Colossians 3:15-17)
We will value spiritual growth by walking together in brotherly love, exercising care and watchfulness over each other, and by faithfully admonishing and entreating one another as occasion may require. While firmly believing that God is the giver of spiritual growth, we will strive to grow in grace by exercising our gifts and abilities in the church, by teaching each other the Scriptures, by stirring each other to love and good works, by remembering each other in prayer, and by allowing liberty in matters of conscience. (Hebrews 10:19-25)
We will value discipleship by eagerly and faithfully testifying of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to both our family and friends. We will pray for their salvation, actively take part in their discipleship, and seek to send them out from among us as mature disciples, evangelists, and missionaries. We will endeavor to bring up our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. We will pray for their salvation, actively take part in their discipleship and seek to send them out from among us as mature disciples, evangelists, and missionaries. (Matt. 28:19-20)
If we move from this place, as soon as possible, we will unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.
