FBC: Church Covenant

As we trust that we have been brought by the divine grace to embrace the Lord Jesus Christ, and by the influence of His spirit to give up ourselves wholly to him, so we do now solemnly covenant with each other that, God helping us, we will walk together in Him in brotherly love;

That as members one of another for the glory of Christ in the salvation of men, we will exercise a Christian care and watchfulness over each other and as occasion may require, faithfully warn, rebuke and admonish one another in the spirit of meekness, considering ourselves lest we also be tempted;

That we will willingly submit to and conscientiously enforce, all wholesome discipline of the church;

That we will uphold the worship of God and the ordinances of His house by regular attendance thereon, search diligently the Scriptures, observe closet or family worship, and seek to train up those under our care to the glory of God in the salvation of their souls;

That, as we have been planted together in the likeness of His death by baptism, and raised from an emblematic grave in newness of life, especially will we seek divine aid to enable us to walk circumspectly and watchfully in the world, denying all ungodliness and every worldly lust;

That we will remember the poor, and contribute cheerfully of our means for their relief, and for the maintenance of a faithful gospel ministry among us, and for the spread of the same to the ends of the earth;

That we will endeavor, by example and effort, to win souls to Christ; and,

Through life, amidst evil report and good report, seek to live to the praise of Him who hath called us out of the darkness into His marvelous light, to whom be glory and honor and power for ever and ever. Amen.
