Church
Covenant

Written
1861
We the subscribing members of the Baptist church of Christ of Plantersville
having received the covenant of God, made, by Him with His people, as we
humbly trust, by which the law of life and love is written in our hearts,
and knowing that it is the will of our Lord Jesus Christ
that we should be united in Christian covenant to each other:
therefore we sacredly agree that as members of the same body 
we will strive to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace.
We agree to watch over each other in love, to cherish all the graces of the 
Spirit of God and to resist as far as possible, all the evil influences of the
world the flesh and the devil, to attend all the meetings of the
church when not providentially prevented, to visit each other  
for mutual edification and Christian comfort, to give of our  worldly
goods to feed the hungry, cloth the needy and relieve  the necessities
of the poor, and for  the support of a faithful ministry among us
according to our abilities and necessities that may exist around us.
And we further agree to be faithful to each other in the exercise 
of Christian discipline as the Scriptures direct.
And as we are the light of the world we will strive to let our light shine
so as to win souls to Christ and strive until death to Glorify God
in our bodies and spirits which are His. And may the God of all grace
make us perfect, working in us both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
#Gal 5:22
