NEW BEGINNINGS BAPTIST CHURCH
Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour, and on the profession of our faith having been baptised in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we do now in the presence of God, angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another as one body in Christ.
FOR THE ADVANCE OF THIS CHURCH
We promise, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this Church in knowledge, holiness, understanding and care; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; and to support its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines.
AS CHRISTIAN STEWARDS
We promise to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the Church and to its expenses, its commitments to spread the Gospel into all the world and its assistance to those in need.
ALONE AND AT HOME
We promise to maintain family and private Bible study and prayer; to educate our children in the Christian Faith; and to share our faith with our family and community.
BEFORE THE WORLD
We promise to walk honestly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful to our commitments and honourable in our conduct; to avoid all gossip, malicious talk and excessive anger; and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the Kingdom of our Saviour.
TOWARD ONE ANOTHER
We further promise to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each other in prayer; to help each other in times of trouble; to be not easily offended and always ready to forgive and settle differences, remembering Christ’s command to do so quickly.
WHEN WE MOVE
We moreover promise that when we move from this place, we will as soon as possible unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.
