Our Church Covenant

Raleigh Chinese Christian Church > Our Church Covenant

As led by the Spirit of God in belief 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 of the Holy Spirit, we solemnly, in the presence of God and one another, joyfully enter into covenant with one another as one Body in Christ.

We strive, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love, to equip the church Body in biblical knowledge and holiness, to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines, to contribute cheerfully and regularly to support the ministry, to the relief of the poor, and to spread the Gospel to the local and foreign lands.

We also strive to maintain daily family and secret prayers; to teach our children the Christian faith; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements; sharing the responsibility and preserving the harmony and unity of our Church.

We further strive to watch over one another in brotherly care and love; to remember one another in prayer; to aid one another in sickness and distress; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation and restoration.

We moreover strive to serve the ministry and support the testimony of our Church; and to support and pray for our church leaders that they may dedicate themselves to the advancement of the person and work of Jesus Christ as given in the Scriptures.

Resolve, with the reciting of this church covenant, we affirm, claim and commit ourselves to be counted righteous in Jesus Christ until He returns. Amen
