The Church Covenant

The Church Covenant

First Baptist Church of Baltimore Street Inc.

Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God, 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 Ghost, 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.

 

We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian Love; to strive for the advancement of this church, in knowledge and holiness; to give it a place in our affections; prayers and services above every organization of human origin; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of a faithful and evangelical ministry among us, the relief of the poor, and spread of the Gospel throughout the world. In case of difference of opinion in church, we will strive to avoid a contentious spirit, and if we cannot unanimously agree, we will cheerfully recognize the right of the majority to govern.

 

We also engage to maintain family and secret devotions; to study diligently the word of God; to religiously educate our children; to seek salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be kind and just to those in our employ, and faithful in the services we promise others, endeavoring in the purity of heart and good will toward all men to exemplify and commend our holy faith.

 

We further engage to watch over, to pray for, to exhort, and stir up each other unto every good word and work; to guard each other’s reputation, not needlessly exposing the infirmities of others, to participate in each joy, and with tender sympathy bear one another’s burdens and sorrows; to cultivate Christian courtesy; to be slow to give or take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, being mindful of the rules of the Savior in the eighteen chapel of Matthew, to secure it without delay; and through life, amid evil report, good report, to seek to live to the glory of God, who hath called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.

 

When we remove from this place, we engage as soon as possible to unite with some other church where we carry out the spirit of this covenant and principles of God’s word.
