Reformation Baptist Church Covenant

We, the members of Reformation Baptist Church, hereby affirm this covenant with one another by God’s grace, for our good, and for God’s glory.  Having been brought, as we believe, by the Spirit of God and divine grace, to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the Lord, Savior, and supreme Treasure of our lives, and upon the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, we do, in the presence of God and this assembly, solemnly and joyfully covenant with one another, as one body in Christ, to glorify God by worshipping together and making disciples.

 

  1. Together, we resolve to love Christ above all, to seek God’s kingdom through regular  devotion to Scripture and prayer, and to actively fight against our sin. 

  2. Together, we resolve to come together regularly for worship.  By the Holy Spirit, we will strive for the unity of this church in knowledge, holiness, love and peace; and to promote its fruitfulness in the true preaching of the Gospel and right use of the ordinances. We will partake of the Lord’s Supper as we remember the past work of Christ on the cross, celebrate the present work of Christ at the Father’s right hand, and anticipate the future work of Christ in His return for the full redemption of His bride.

  3. Together, we resolve to watch over one another in brotherly love, to remember one another in prayer, participate in one another’s joys, and bear one another’s burdens.  We will cultivate Christian compassion and be slow to take offense, always being ready for reconciliation.  We will humbly and graciously confront and receive correction from one another through biblical church discipline and restoration.  We will edify one another with our speech and encourage one another in our example.

  4. Together, we resolve to pray for and submit to the leadership which has been entrusted by God to shepherd this body by exemplifying godliness and equipping the saints for the work of the ministry.

  5. Together, we resolve to seek the salvation of our family and neighbors.  We will maintain family worship and train our children and those under our care according to the Christian faith.

  6. Together, we resolve to walk wisely in the world, to be faithful in our engagements and Christ-exalting in our lifestyles, to avoid all gossiping, and to abstain from all practices which bring unwarranted harm to the body or one’s faith.  We will contribute cheerfully and sacrificially to the support of the church, aid of those in need, and spread of the Gospel through all nations.

  7. If we move from this place, we will, as soon as possible, unite with another biblical local church of like faith and practice, where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and truths of God's Word.

 

 

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all.  Amen.
