At FBC, we covenant with one another in the fellowship of the gospel. Our covenant articulates the biblical responsibilities of church members (1 Cor. 1:9). We commit to live out these principles before God and with one another. Our church covenant is as follows:

Having been led by the Holy Spirit to receive Christ as our Savior, and, upon the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father and the Son and 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 a local expression of the one body in Christ.

We engage by the assistance of the Holy Spirit to walk together in Christian love; to advance this church in knowledge and holiness; to uphold its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrine; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel among all nations.

We engage to maintain family and personal devotions; to educate our children in the Christian faith; to seek the salvation of our family and friends; to walk carefully in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our conduct; to avoid all gossip, backbiting, and sinful anger; to seek God’s help in abstaining from all practices that bring disrepute to the church and harm to our fellow believers.

We engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember one another in prayer; to aid one another in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in sentiment and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation and mindful of the guidelines of our Savior to secure it without delay.

We engage that, when we move from this place, we will, if possible, unite with a church where we can carry out the articles of this confession and the spirit of this covenant.
