"Having been led, as we believe, by the
Spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus
Christ as our Saviour; and on the 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.
Baptist Church Covenant
Hill's Chapel Missionary Baptist Church

We also engage to maintain family and
secret devotion; to study diligently the
word of God; to religiously educate our
children; to seek the salvation of our
kindred and acquaintance ; to walk
circumspectly in the world; to be kind
and just to those in our employ , and
faithful in the service we promise others;
endeavoring in the purity of heart and
good will towards all men to exemplify
and commend our holy faith.
We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian
love; to strive for the advancement of this church in knowledge and holiness; to
give it a place in our affections, prayers and services above every organization of
human origin; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrine; to
contribute cheerfully and regularly, as God has prospered us, toward its expenses,
for the support of a faithful and evangelical ministry among us, the relief of the
poor and the spread of the Gospel throughout the world. In case of difference of
opinion in the church, we will strive to avoid a contentious spirit, and if we
cannot unanimously agree, we will cheerfully recognize the right of the majority
to govern.
When we remove from this place, we engage as soon as possible to unite
with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant
and the principles of God's word
.
We further engage to watch over, to pray for, to exhort and stir up each other
unto every good word and work; to guard each other's reputation, not
needlessly exposing the infirmities of others; to participate in each other's
joys, and with tender sympathy bear one another's burdens and sorrows; to
cultivate Christian courtesy; to be slow to give or take offense, but always
ready for reconciliation, being mindful of the rules of the Saviour in the
eighteenth chapter of Matthew, to secure it without delay; and through life,
amid evil report, and good report, to seek to live to the glory of God, who
hath called us out of darkness into his marvelous light.
