We have been brought by divine grace to receive the Lord Jesus Christ and to give ourselves up to Him. We have also acknowledged a special obligation to live a new and holy life. And now, relying on the gracious aid of our God and Savior, we sincerely make this covenant with each other:
1. Love Others
That we will walk together in brotherly love, as is becoming of members of Christ’s church, and that we will faithfully admonish and entreat one another as occasion may require.
2. Make Disciples
That we will endeavor, by nurture and admonition of the Lord and by a pure and holy example, to win our family and acquaintances to the Savior and to holy living.
3. Share Life
That we will rejoice in each other’s happiness, and endeavor with tenderness and sympathy to bear each other’s burdens and sorrows.
4. Resolve Conflict
That we will not bring forward to the church a complaint against any member for any personal trespass against us until we have taken the steps pointed out by Christ in His instructions to His disciples, and that all private offenses which can be privately settled we will never make public.
5. Provide Support
That we will strive together for the support of a faithful evangelical ministry among us; that according to our abilities and opportunities we will, as faithful servants of the Lord, do good to all men, especially in helping to extend the gospel in its purity and power to the whole human family, and that we will regularly support the work of the church by systematic contributions of our time and money.
