Our Church Covenant

Believing that the Holy Spirit has led us to receive Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord, and on the profession of our Faith, having been baptized by the immersion in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we do now in the presence of God, gladly enter into the covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.The Lord being our Helper, we propose to live together in Christian love; to be slow to take offence and always ready for reconciliation and mindful of the rules of our Savior and to seek it without delay; to work for the growth of the Aylesford Baptist Church in purity and spiritual maturity; to faithfully support its worship ordinances, discipline and doctrine; to strengthen its ministry by our cheerful and regular giving of tithes and offerings.

We acknowledge that God has called us to be His lights in a world of sin and injustice; to make disciples of all nations, baptizing and teaching them to obey Christ’s command, and to seek the relief of those in distress.

We accept the responsibility to honor God in our homes; to educate ourselves and our children from the Word of God, to seek the Salvation of our kindred and acquaintances, and to advance the Kingdom of our Savior; to abstain from worldliness and substances that are harmful to our bodies.

We further engage to watch over one another in Christian love, to remember each other in prayer, to aid each other in sickness and distress. Should we move from this place, we will unite with some other church as soon as possible, in whose fellowship we can carry out the Spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.
