Treasuring Christ Church
Having repented of my sin and trusted in Jesus Christ, and having been baptized after my confession of faith in the name of the Father and Son and Holy Spirit, I now join in covenant together with Treasuring Christ Church.
In all of life, we will aim to glorify and delight ourselves in God. Individually and corporately, we will seek first Christ’s kingdom and his righteousness rather than pursue our self–interest. We will make every effort to live in a manner worthy of our calling, to be exemplary in our conduct, and to treat one another with love, respect, and forgiveness. We commit to avoid sin, to abstain from sexual immorality, and any practice which brings division to the church or jeopardizes our faith. We will watch over one another in brotherly love, to remember one another in prayer, to aid each other in sickness and distress, to show grace in our speech, to be slow to take offense, and to be ready for reconciliation without delay.
We will not neglect to gather together, but will support and treasure the biblical preaching of the whole counsel of God, the faithful observance of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, and, when necessary, the loving exercise of church discipline. We commit ourselves to willingly submit to the leaders of the church and will give joyfully, regularly, and sacrificially to the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the advancement of the gospel both to our neighbors and the nations.
We will conduct our relationships and families according to the pattern laid out in Scripture, to honor biblical marriage, and to raise our children in the instruction of the Lord. We will commit to faithfully advance the gospel and make disciples in our city and abroad, living out our faith in all of life, sending to the nations those from among us, and readying ourselves to go whenever and wherever God calls us.
If we move away from Treasuring Christ Church, we will, as soon as possible, join with another church where we can fulfill the responsibilities of our covenant and join in mission with a local church committed to God, His people, and the gospel.
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.
