Covenant

As we trust we have been brought by divine grace to embrace the Lord Jesus Christ and by the influence of His Spirit to give ourselves up to Him, so we do most solemnly covenant with each other, that God enabling us, we will walk together in brotherly love.

That we will exercise a Christian care and watchfulness over each other, and faithfully warn, rebuke, and admonish one another as the case shall require, and in all things seek and guard the honor and the true function of the church.

That we will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, nor omit the great duty of prayer, both for ourselves and for others, and for the enterprise of the Kingdom of God.

That we will share in each others joys, and endeavor with tenderness and sympathy, to bear each others burdens and sorrows.

That we will earnestly endeavor to bring up such as are, or may be, under our care, in the nurture and admonition of the Lord

That we will seek divine aid to enable us to walk circumspectly and watchfully in the world, denying ungodliness and every worldly lust.
