Article II

Church Covenant

Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus

Christ as our Savior, and on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the

name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, we do now, in the

presence of God, angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully

enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.

We engage therefore, 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 sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines;

To contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the

church, and the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel through all nations.

We also engage to maintain family and secret devotions, to religiously educate

out children, to see the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances.

To walk circumspectly in the world, to be just in our dealings, faithful in our

engagements, and exemplary in our deportment.

To avoid all tattling, backbiting, and excessive anger.

To abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage, and to

be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior.

We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love.

To remember each other in prayer, to aid each other in sickness, to cultivate

Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech. To be slow to take offense,

but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Savior to

secure it without delay.

We moreover engage that when we remove from this place we will, as soon

as possible, unite with some other church, where we can carry out the spirit of

this covenant and the principles of God's Word.
