Our mission is to glorify God as a people united in love and committed to continuing the ministry of Christ our Lord on earth through the power of the Holy Spirit.
“Having been led by the Spirit to profess our faith in Jesus Christ, and having been baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we do now solemnly and joyfully affirm our covenant with God and with each other.
We affirm our mission is to glorify God as a people united in love and committed to continuing the ministry of Christ our Lord on earth through the power of the Holy Spirit.
We pledge to serve Christ in the community of this Church by discovering our gifts and talents, by becoming equipped to serve and by developing a servant’s heart. We will act in love toward one another, refusing to gossip about one another, remembering one another in prayer, sharing each other’s joys and sustaining each other in times of distress.
We aspire to be a community of the concerned, where the lost may find Jesus Christ, sinners may find pardon, seekers may find meaning for their lives, and where all who come may find welcome. We shall strive to be responsible Church members, through faithful attendance, by growing spiritually and by godly living, giving regularly to the ministries of the church, participating in the ordinances of believer's baptism and holy communion and following the leaders we ourselves have chosen. We will share the responsibility of this church by praying for its growth, by inviting others to attend and by warmly welcoming those who visit.
We shall seek to be obedient to Christ in our daily living. Within our homes, in our work and while at leisure, we shall strive for attitudes and actions which will reflect God’s Spirit working through us. Believing that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, we shall seek to avoid experiences and habits which defile the body and hinder our witness.
Bound together in the broader community of faith with all who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, we shall work and pray for a spirit of unity among all Christians.
Believing that our call to be a Church is a call to witness in the world, we dedicate ourselves anew as servants of the Lord of all life. Whenever people are in bondage to ignorance, poverty, fear, or prejudice, we shall strive for justice, freedom, dignity and peace. Whenever people are separated by barriers of hostility and distrust, we shall 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.
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. Amen.”
