Church Covenant

Church Covenant

Having received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, having obeyed Him in believer’s baptism, and being in agreement with Grace Baptist’s vision, statement of faith, constitution and bylaws, I commit myself to God and to the other members of this church to live as a growing disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ – loving God, loving people, and making disciples, following Jesus.

By God’s grace and enabling of the Holy Spirit:

1. I will protect the unity of our church: Ephesians 4:1-6

--By acting in love toward other members (John 13:34-35; I Peter 1:22)

--By refusing to gossip (Proverbs 6:16-19, 16:28; Ephesians 4:29; 1 Peter 3:8-12)

--By quickly resolving personal conflicts (Matthew 5:9, 23-24; 18:15-35)

--By submitting to the leadership of our church in the spirit of Hebrews 13:7, 17

2. I will share the responsibilities of our church: Matthew 28:18-20

--By praying (Luke 10:2, 11:1-4; Philippians 1:3-11; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

--By inviting the unchurched to attend (Luke 14:23: Revelation 22:17)

--By warmly welcoming those who visit (Romans 15:7; Hebrews 13:1-2)

--By giving regularly of my resources (Luke 6:38; 2 Corinthians 8:1-5, 9:6-15)

3. I will serve the ministries of our church: Ephesians 4:15-16

--By discovering and using my spiritual gifts (Romans 12:3-8; 1 Peter 4:10)

--By volunteering to serve in Jesus’ name (Matthew 25:31-40; Hebrews 13:20-21)

--By being a disciple making disciples unto our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Timothy 2:2)

4. I will support the testimony of our church: 1 Thessalonians 1:2-10

--By faithfully participating in worship and witness (Hebrews 10:25; Luke 24:46-48)

--By living a godly life (Matthew 5:16; 1 Cor 6:9-11; Philippians 1:27; Titus 2:11-14)

I affirm these principles of our Church Covenant and encourage our church leadership to promote genuine discipleship unto Jesus Christ in this local body of believers in accordance with the teachings of the Scriptures.
