Church covenant

  • Having been led, as we believe, by the Holy Spirit, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour and on the profession of our faith in Him, having been baptized by immersion in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we do 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 Pinegrove, in knowledge, holiness and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines; and to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of Pinegrove, service to our community, and the spread of the gospel through the community and all nations.

    We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offence, but always ready for reconciliation.
