Church Covenant

The First Comforter 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 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 of Christ.

We engage therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christina 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 support the ministry, the expense of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel to all nations.

We also engage to maintain family and secret devotion, to religiously educate our children, to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances, to walk circumspectly in the world, to be just in our dealings, faithfully in our engagements, and exemplary in our department, to avoid all tattling, back-biting, and excessive anger,  to abstain from the use of anything toxic to our bodies, believing our bodies to be the temple of the Holy Ghost, and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our savior.

We further engage to watch over each other in brotherly love, to remember each other in prayer, to aid each other in sickness and distress; 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.

Furthermore we covenant to teach, preach, and exercise the gifts of the Spirit and all ministries outlined by the word of God.
