HBC Covenant

Having accepted the calling, as I believe, from the Spirit of God, to be a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, and, on the profession of my faith, I do now, in the presence of God, angels and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with the members of Harvest Bible Chapel Flagstaff.

I commit, therefore, by the grace given me by God, to walk with others in Christian love, to strive for the building up of Harvest Bible Chapel in the knowledge of Jesus Christ and holiness; to promote its health; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to pray for and respectfully follow the leadership of this church, trusting and supporting their leadership; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of its ministries, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel through all nations.

I also commit to pursue personal holiness, maintaining personal and family devotions; to educate our children in the Christian faith; to seek the salvation of my family and acquaintances; to walk with awareness in the world; to be just in my dealings, faithful in my engagements, and exemplary in my behavior, to avoid all gossip, backbiting and excessive anger; to seek God’s help in abstaining from all practices which bring unwarranted harm to my body or may cause myself or another to stumble.

I further commit to watch over others in brotherly love; to remember others in prayer; to aid others in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian humility, empathy, compassion, and courtesy; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation and mindful of the rules of my Savior to secure it without delay.

I moreover commit that if I am led by God to leave Harvest Bible Chapel Flagstaff, I will, if possible, unite with a church where I can carry out the articles of this confession and the spirit of this covenant.
