Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour, Jn 1:12, Eph 2:8, II Thess 2:13, Isa 12:2, Jn 3:16, Acts 16:31,

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; I Cor 12:14-27, Rom 12:4-8, Eph 2:19-22,

We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love; I Cor 1:10, Rom 15:5-6, II Cor 3:5, Amos 3:3, I Jn 2:10,

To strive for the advancement of this New Testament Church in knowledge, holiness and comfort; Heb 10:24, Gal 5:13, I Sam 12:23, Jas 5:16, II Pet 3:18,

We also engage to maintain family and secret devotions; II Cor 8:5, Mt 6:6, 7:7, Lk 18:1,

To religiously educate our children; Eph 6:4, Deut 6:7-12, Prov 22:6, II Tim 3:15,

To be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements and exemplary in our deportment; I Pet 2:12. Heb 13:21. Phil 3:16-18

To avoid all tattling, backbiting, and fleshly anger; Mt 12:36, Prov 26:20, Rom 1:30, Eph 4:26, Prov 6:16-19,

To abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage; Prov 20:1, 23:29-32, Eph 5:18, I Thess 5:22,

And to be zealous in our efforts to advance the work of the Saviour; Jn 15:16, I Cor 15:58, II Cor 5:20.

We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; Gal 6:2, I Cor 5:13, Rom 14:7, II Thess 3:14-15,

To remember each other in prayer; Heb 13:18, Eph 6:18.

To aid each other in sickness and distress; Rom 12:15, Phil 4:16,

To cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech; I John 3:17-18, Jas 3:13, Col 3:17, 4:6

To be slow to take offense but always ready for reconciliation and mindful of the laws of our Saviour, to secure it without delay; I Cor 6:7, Mt 18:15, 21-22, Rom 14:19,

We, moreover, engage that when we remove from this place we will, as soon as possible, unite with another New Testament Church of like faith and practice where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Work; Acts 9:19, 18:27 Rom 16:1-2, Heb 10:25, Gal 1:9.
