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 that 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 of holiness and comfort; to promote it’s prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry. the expense of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spreading of the Gospel through the nations.
We also engage to maintain family and private devotions; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of the world, to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportment, to avoid intoxicating drinks as a beverage, and 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 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 serve it without delay.
