Church Covenant

Forasmuch as God Almighty has called out a body of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, and has blessed us to be formed into a New Testament Church, we the undersigned do covenant together to serve our Holy God and one another by striving to observe the following rules of gospel order:

By the enabling grace of God, we shall

  1. Regularly attend the worship services. (Heb. 10:25; Rom. 12:1; 1 Cor. 1:10)
