Tarkio First Baptist Covenant
Having been drawn by the Holy Spirit to receive Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord, and on my public profession of faith in Him, having been baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, I do now enter into covenant with this church as one body in Christ. I promise, with the aid of the Holy Spirit:
Advancement Of The Church
To strive for the advancement of this church for the glory of Christ, in proclaiming, ministering, witnessing, and educating; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines.
To walk with fellow Christians in brotherly love; to help those who are weak in the faith, sick or in distress, remembering them in prayer.
To work honestly in the world; to be just in dealings, faithful in my commitments, and exemplary in my behavior.
To return no man evil for evil, but always be ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Savior to seek it without delay, and to use my leisure time to build body, soul, and character, as well as Christian fellowship.
Relief To The Poor
To contribute in a cheerful and regular manner to the expenses of this church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel through all nations.
To study the scriptures and maintain family and private devotions. To bring up my children in the way of the Lord. To seek the salvation of lost kindred and acquaintances.
Appearances Of Evil
To abstain from harmful habits and appearances of evil, consistent with Holy Scriptures.
When I move from this place, I will as soon as feasible, unite with some other church where I can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s word.
