Covenant of Membership

Acknowledging the  various statements of faith under which its members may have made their  professions, the Church agrees upon the following main points as indication of  the basic convictions of its membership:

  • We believe in God,  the Heavenly Father, whose goodness is our blessing, and whose wisdom is our  law.
  • We believe in Jesus  Christ, the Son of God, our Divine Lord and personal Savior, whose life and  death and resurrection redeem and inspire all who accept Him.
  • We believe in the  Holy Spirit, by whom we are led the ways of righteousness and love.
  • We believe in the  Holy Scriptures, the Word of God, which reveal to us His will and are our guide  in faith and practice.
  • We believe in the  Kingdom of God as the divine rule in human society; we believe in the testimony  of the Apostles; and we believe the Church to be Christ’s body of believers.
  •  We believe in the  power of prayer; in Baptism and Holy Communion as sacraments; and in the life  everlasting.

Upon this foundation of our faith  we enter into a covenant with one another and with God to live and labor  together, as true disciples of Jesus Christ.
