Our Covenant

TPCC-ProfileBy the grace of God we have been led to repent of our sin and believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.

We have confessed our faith and been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Now, therefore, in the presence of God, angels and this assembly, we joyfully and solemnly enter into (renew) covenant with one another as one body in Christ.

We purpose to walk together in Christian love through the power of the Holy Spirit. We will rejoice at each other’s happiness, remember to pray for one another, and endeavor with tenderness and sympathy to bear each other’s burdens and sorrows helping one another in sickness and distress.

Unless providentially hindered, we will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, but faithfully attend the church’s meetings for worship, prayer, study, and fellowship, and will use our spiritual gifts for the common good.

We pledge to faithfully participate in the ordinances of the church, and endeavor after unity of mind in doctrine. We will reject all heretical beliefs and practices, using Scripture as our final authority.

We will both submit to the church’s discipline upon ourselves and lovingly assume our responsibility to participate in the discipline of other members, as taught in Scripture.

We will contribute cheerfully and regularly to this church for its general ministry and expenses, the relief of those in need, and the spread of the Gospel throughout all nations.

We will strive by God’s grace and power to live as Christ in the world; and denying ungodliness and worldly lusts we will seek to fulfill our calling to be salt and light and to lead a holy life. We will abide by the biblical standards of sexual purity, ethical integrity, and spiritual fidelity.

Believing that the pursuit of peace with others and personal holiness accompany true faith in Christ, we will be slow to take offense, always eager to seek the reconciliation Christ commands, and will work to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

We resolve to practice personal and family worship, and to train our children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

We will pray for a passion for the lost and seek the salvation of our family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, acquaintances, and of all the world.

We promise that if, in the providence of God, we leave this church we will diligently seek to unite with another church where we can continue to carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.

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.
