Parkview Baptist Church Covenant
Draft, September 8, 2015
  1. Having been led by the Spirit of God to profess our faith in Jesus Christ and having been baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, we do now solemnly and joyfully affirm our Covenant with God and with each other.
  2. We pledge to serve Christ in the fellowship of the congregation. We shall endeavor to love one another, to remember one another in prayer, to share in each other’s joys and to sustain each other in times of distress. We aspire to be a fellowship of the concerned, helping the lost find Jesus Christ, sinners find pardon through Christ, seekers find meaning for their lives and, where all who come find welcome. We shall strive to be responsible church members through faithful attendance, study and lifestyle. We commit to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the financial support of our ministry.
  3. We shall seek to be obedient to Christ in our daily living, within our homes, in our labor and in our leisure, and we shall strive for attitudes and actions that will reflect God’s Spirit working through us. Believing that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit,we shall endeavor to avoid experiences and habits that defile the body and hider our witness.
  4. Bound together in a fellowship of faith with all that confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we shall pray and labor for a spirit of unity among all Christians.
  5. Believing that our mission as a church is to witness for Jesus Christ in the world, we dedicate ourselves anew as servants of the Lord of all life. Whenever men, women, children are separated from God and one another by sin, hostility and distrust, we shall strive to be ministers of God’s reconciling love. As we pledge our support to the work of our missionaries throughout the world, we commit ourselves to the mission to which God calls us all.
  1. Acknowledging our human frailties and ever seeking forgiveness, we profess our need of the Holy Spirit, and commit our lives to Jesus Christ, and through him to the care, the judgement, the deliverance and the mercy of Almighty God.
  2. When we move from Parkview Baptist Church we will as soon a possible unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of our Covenant and the principles of God’s Holy Word.
