Our Church Covenant

We, the members of the Jewett City Baptist Church, through the grace of God, humbly and solemnly undertake with his aid:

To attend the worship and services of the church regularly, using them for the edification of our souls;

To contribute, according to our ability, to the financial support and work of this church and its various outreaches;

To aid and assist prayerfully, loyally, and affectionately, the minister and those who work with him in the witness of this local church;

To maintain, in all our relations with our fellow members, an attitude of spiritual integrity, sympathy and love;

To cooperate with interest and earnestness in the redemptive, missionary, and social tasks of the Kingdom of God;

To cultivate by prayer and meditation a life of devotion and consecration to God and to our Savior, Jesus Christ;

To aspire, in our private lives, to character and conduct that shall be approved by God and our own consciences;

To order the life in our homes so that they may truly be Christian and dwelling places of God;

To gear ourselves in our social and business inter-relationships in accordance with the principles of Jesus Christ;

To seek, upon removal from this local Body, to unite with another Christian Church where we might nurture our spiritual growth;

We enter this covenant inspired by devoted love to Him who gave Himself for our salvation.

We seek that communion of our spirits with his, so graciously bestowed on us. We desire to serve Him and those who are the work of

His Hand. We pray for divine Guidance and help in this our earnest endeavour.
