Cosmopolitan Baptist Church
As members of CBC, we affirm this covenant with one another by God’s grace for our good and ultimately for God’s glory.
Having been led, as we believe, by the Holy Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus as our Savior, and on profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 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. We covenant together to glorify God by discipling all people.
Together we engage to draw near to God in worship. We will delight in the glory of God, depend on the presence of God, grow in the knowledge of God, and submit to the Word of God as the all‐sufficient authority in our lives and in His Church. According to the teachings of the Holy Scriptures. We will seek God's help in practicing to live righteously before Him and all mankind.
We also engage to maintain family and personal devotions; to religiously educate our children to seek the salvation of our family and acquaintances, to walk circumspectly in the world, and to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements and exemplary in our deportment, to avoid all gossiping, backbiting and excessive anger. To be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior.
We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech, to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation and mindful of the rules of our Savior, to secure it without delay.
We moreover engage that when we remove from this local church we will as soon as possible unite with some other church, where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.
And now unto Him, who brought again from the dead, Our Lord Jesus Christ be Power and Glory forever. Amen
