Our covenant with one another is to seek and respond to the Word and the Will of God. We promise to walk together in the ways of the Lord, ways made known and ways to be made known to us. We hold it to be the mission of the Church to witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in all the world, while worshipping God, and striving for truth, justice and peace. As did our fathers and mothers, we depend on the Holy Spirit to lead us and empower us. We pray for the coming of the kingdom of God, and we look with faith toward the triumph of righteousness and enteral life.
We are a dynamic and spirit filled place. Everything we do, we do with a heart for God and we try to keep God in the center of everything.
Throughout church history, the concept of covenant has played an important role. Through various church liturgies, rituals, and interpretations of scripture, church members are encouraged to live a life reflecting their commitment to the church in order to foster a strong relationship with their faith family.
A covenant is a binding agreement between individuals, church members, and even an entire church. Covenant relationships often include deep emotional connections and regular checks by church members on each other’s emotional and spiritual health. When properly implemented, the covenant creates a beautiful bond between the church body and its members which strengthens the church’s unity and ability to carry out God’s mission.
