Partner Covenant

As those who have been brought by sovereign grace to repent and believe in Jesus Christ as the Lord, Savior, and Treasure of our lives, and having been baptized, we solemnly and joyfully covenant with each other as one body in Christ.

By the Spirit’s help:
  • We joyfully submit to the Scriptures as the final authority on all issues.
  • We will work and pray for the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace, being slow to take offense, and diligently pursuing reconciliation when necessary.
  • We will remember one another in prayer, exercise affectionate care and watchfulness over each other, and faithfully admonish and encourage one another.
  • We will pursue Jesus through the ordinary means of grace (like Scripture reading and prayer) and will encourage the same in one another.
  • We will regularly gather together, engaging in gospel community, rejoicing with each other’s happiness, and bearing one another’s burdens and sorrows.
  • We will seek to live carefully and honorably before the world, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, remembering that we have been buried with Christ and raised with him to walk in newness of life.
  • We will protect the worship, communion, and doctrines of this church.
  • We will welcome and humbly test the biblical instruction given by the pastors of this church.
  • We will give joyfully, sacrificially, regularly to support the ministry of this church and the spread of the gospel to all nations.
  • We commit to help people find hope in Jesus by making and mobilizing faithful disciples of Jesus.
  • We commit to embrace the procedures of loving, gracious, and biblical discipline.
  • We commit that, when we move from this place, we will join a like-minded church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant.

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.
