Covenant of Fellowship

By the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit, we do covenant together to:

  1. Demonstrate the love of Christ to one another. (John 13:34,35; 1 John 4:7)
  2. Be accountable to others for my growth in Christ and be an encouragement to others to grow in Christ. (Hebrews 3:13; 10:24,25)
  3. Pray with and for one another in the local church and for all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, thereby sharing our burdens, sorrows and joys. (Romans 12:15; Eph. 6:18)
  4. Be thoughtful of and courteous to one another, be slow to take offense and be quick to forgive and to seek forgiveness. (Ephesians 4:29-32; James 1:19)
  5. Be faithful in the use of my spiritual gifts to minister in at least one ministry in our fellowship. (Philippians 4:3: 1 Peter 4:10)
  6. Contribute, as the Lord enables, to the financial support of the church, the relief of the needy and the evangelization of all people. (1 Corinthians 16:2; 9:3-18; 2 Corinthians 8:1-5; 9:6-8)
  7. Engage regularly in personal Bible reading and prayer, and establish family devotions where possible. (Psalms 1:1-3, 1 Thessalonians 5:17)
  8. Bring up my children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. (Deuteronomy 6:6,7; Ephesians 6:4)
  9. Live my life in honesty and faithfulness before all men so that the name of Christ will be well spoken of as a result of my testimony. (Romans 12:17; 1 Thessalonians 4:11,12; Titus 2:10-12)
  10. Endeavor by example, by word and by prayer to win others to an acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. (Matthew 28:19,20; Acts 1:8)
  11. Attend the worship services consistently and be a part of a small group (Impact Group) for accountability and growth. (Acts 2:42; Hebrews 10:24,25)
  12. Be in submission to the spiritual leadership of the fellowship. (Hebrews 13:17: 1 Thessalonians 5:12-14)
  13. All members shall seek to resolve personal disputes with other believers through Christian mediation according to the principles of Matthew 18:15-20 and 1 Corinthians 6:1-11.
