Main Street Church Covenant
As those who have been brought by divine grace to repent and believe Jesus Christ is the Lord and Savior of our lives, having publicly professed our faith, through experiencing baptism in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 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.
Regarding Main Street Church
We will make every effort, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love, to advance Main Street Church (MSC) in knowledge, holiness, and peace, to attend and commit to regular worship, to embrace and test instruction from Scripture as presented by the elders and delegated teachers, and to intentionally pursue the propagation of the Gospel.
Regarding Financial Stewardship
We will make every effort, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to contribute cheerfully and regularly in support of the ministry of MSC regarding the financial obligations and expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel to all nations.
Regarding a Holy Life
We will make every effort, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to live lives devoted to Christ in educating our children in the Christian faith with the fear and admonition of the Lord, to work toward the salvation of both family and friends, to live wisely and purely through denying the desires of the flesh, and to living under the authority of the Holy Spirit and the Scriptures.
Regarding Main Street Church Members
We will make every effort, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to watch over one another in brotherly love, to consistently pray for one another, to help one another in sickness and distress, to cultivate compassion for each other and kindness in speech, to demonstrate love and patience by not becoming easily offended, with a heart desiring reconciliation and forgiveness, as modeled by Christ’s forgiveness for us.
Regarding the Universal Church
We will make every effort, with the help of the Holy Spirit, if we leave this body of believers, to unite with a like-minded church, where we can continue the spirit of this covenant.
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.
