FBC Membership Covenant

Our Covenant one to another is:
Having been led by the Holy Spirit to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, we do now, in the presence of God and this assembly, solemnly and joyfully endeavor to keep the spirit of this covenant as one body in Christ, and unite together according to the following purposes.

We purpose, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this church in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to attend its meetings regularly; to sustain its worship ordinances, and doctrines; to submit to its discipline and the authority of its officers; to give it a sacred preeminence over all institutions of human origin; to give faithfully of time and talent in its activities; to contribute cheerfully and regularly, as God has prospered us, to the support of its ministry.

We also purpose to maintain family and private devotions; to train our children according to the Word of God; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk carefully in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our conduct; to abstain from all activities, habits, and lifestyles which dishonor our Lord Jesus Christ; to be zealous in our efforts to advance the cause of Christ and to give Him preeminence in all things.

We further purpose to encourage one another, 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 and always ready for reconciliation.

We moreover purpose that if we remove from this place, we will do so in a way that honors Christ by informing those who are charged with caring for our souls and by making every effort to leave peaceably with those in the body of Christ. Likewise, we will as soon as possible unite with some other church of like faith and order where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word. In the event there is no such church, we shall seek, with the Lord's help, to establish one.
