Church Covenant

As members of MEADOW BROOK BAPTIST CHURCH, we affirm the following covenant with one another for the glory of God and for the good of this church.

We believe God has extended salvation to us by his grace, leading us to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, giving our lives to Him.  Furthermore, having been baptized as followers of Jesus in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, we covenant together to glorify God by knowing God through biblical worship, growing together as disciples of Christ, and going throughout the world with the gospel of Christ.

As followers of Christ, we will value worship.  We will devote our lives to worship God.  We will strive to honor God by gathering together consistently, praying for one another regularly, and serving one another selflessly.  Together, we will strive to live lives of obedience to God by submitting to the all-sufficient Word of God.

As followers of Christ, we will value discipleship.  We will strive to grow in Christ together by seeking Christ in the home, in the community, and in the church.  When we gather, we will pray to the Almighty God, read the Word of God, hear the truths of God, observe the ordinances of God, fellowship in the name of God, and sing to the glory of God, as we anticipate the return of Christ.

As followers of Christ, we will value missions.  We will spend our lives to make God known among the lost.  Recognizing that Jesus is Lord, we will strive to share and to show the gospel of Jesus Christ in our homes, in our neighborhoods, in our city, and to the ends of the earth.  We will generously give time, talents, and resources in support of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel throughout the world.

We believe God has called, entrusted, and equipped pastors and leaders to serve and care for this local church by teaching the Scriptures to us and modeling Christ’s character for us.  According to the Bible, they are accountable to God for faithful leadership, and we are all accountable to God for faithful obedience.  If we move from this local church, we will as soon as possible unite with another local church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.

As members of MEADOW BROOK BAPTIST CHURCH, we affirm this covenant with one another for the glory of God and for the good of this church.

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.
