Church Covenant

The members of Union agree to follow the standards outlined in the following new Baptist Church Covenant: 

Having been lead as we believe, by the spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior; 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. 

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 out holy faith. 

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 Savior 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 glorify of God. who bath called us out of darkness into his marvelous light. 

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.
