Mill City Church Covenant

As members of Mill City Church, we affirm this covenant with one another by God’s grace, for our good and for God’s glory.

Believing that we have been brought by the grace of God to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and have been baptized upon our profession of faith, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and continuing to live by His grace, we joyfully covenant together to glorify God by making disciples of all nations.

Together, we will 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.

Together, we will hold fast to the hope we profess. We will regularly participate in communion as we solemnly and joyfully remember the past work of Christ on the Cross, celebrate the present work of Christ at the Father’s right hand, and anticipate the future work of Christ in His return for His bride.

Together, we will spur one another on to love and good deeds. We will meet with one another consistently, pray for one another regularly, and serve one another selflessly as members of the ultimate family of God. We will share each other’s joy and bear each other’s burdens. We will humbly and gently confront one another and receive correction from one another in accordance with a New Testament understanding of church discipline and restoration.

We will, as we are blessed to be parents, endeavor to bring up our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and by pure and loving example to seek the salvation of our family and friends.

Together, we will give cheerfully and generously to the support of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel throughout all nations.

Together, we will submit to the leadership of the elders who have been entrusted by God to serve and care for this body by teaching the Word of Christ to us and modeling the character of Christ before us; and we will affirm deacons and deaconesses as leading servants in the church.

If we move from this local body, we will as soon as possible unite with another local church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God and the fellowship of the Spirit be with us all. Amen.
