Our Church Covenant

Our Church Covenant

Having been brought by God’s grace to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and by agreeing with the Statement of Faith, we establish this covenant as a faith family.

While depending upon God’s Spirit, we resolve to do the following:

We will protect the Unity of our church
… by refusing to gossip or speak evil of others (Eph 4:29)
… by committing to brotherly love, humility, gentleness, encouraging one another, and admonishing one another when necessary (Col 3:13; 1 Thes 5:11; 1 Pet 1:22)
… by rejoicing with those who rejoice and weeping with those who weep (Rom 12:15-16)
… by faithfully following the church leadership (Heb 13:17)

We will share in the Ministry of our church
… by praying for her health and growth (1 Thes 1:2)
… by using our gifts and talents to serve the faith family (1 Pet 4:10)
… by demonstrating a servant’s heart (Rom 12:3-8)
… by actively building relationships with unbelievers and sharing the Gospel with them (Matt 28:19-20)

We will support the Testimony of our church
… by faithfully attending worship gatherings (Heb 10:25)
… by seeking God’s help to live carefully in this world and denying ungodliness and worldly passions. We will strive to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives (Titus 2:12; 1 Pet 1:14) 
… by financially contributing cheerfully, generously, and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel (Luke 12:33; 2 Cor 9:7) 
… by committing that upon moving from Abu Dhabi, we will unite with another church as soon as possible where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word (Heb 10:25)
