The covenant by which this church exists as a distinct body and which every member accepts, is as follows:
Acknowledging Jesus Christ to be our Savior and Lord, and submitting to the authority of the Holy Scriptures as our rule of faith and practice. Recognizing the privilege and duty of uniting ourselves for Christian fellowship, the enjoyment of Christian ordinances, the public worship of God and the advancement of His church on earth, we do now, in the sight of God and invoking His blessing, solemnly covenant and agree with each other to associate ourselves as a Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, as warranted by the Word of God.
We agree to maintain the teaching and preaching of the Word of God, to submit ourselves to the orderly administration of the affairs of the church and to walk together in brotherly love.
This we do depending on the aid of our Heavenly Father, who so loved he world that He gave His only begotten Son for our salvation, and of Jesus Christ who redeemed us with His blood, and of the Holy Spirit, our Comforter and Guide.
