Our Church Covenant

Singing hymns (website)Church Covenant of First Baptist Church

Since it is through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord,
that we have discovered God as Father, and because we seek
to follow Him, we do now solemnly covenant with each other…

That we will walk together in love as brothers and sisters;

That we will exercise concern and watchfulness over each other;

That we will remember each other in prayer;

That we will participate in each other’s joys . . . and
endeavor with tenderness and sympathy to bear
each other’s burdens and sorrows;

That we will strive earnestly for Christian fulfillment
within our homes;

That we will seek through faithful example so to live
that others will be drawn to our Savior and Lord;

That we will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together for worship;

That we will give regularly of ourselves and means
to support a faithful ministry in our community,
one that extends to the distant places of the earth;

And that through all our days we will seek to live to the
glory of Him who has called us out of darkness
into His marvelous light.
