Our Covenant

We have been called of God into a covenant relationship with Him and have been gathered for His purposes. In the presence of God and in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we enter into this covenant with one another as members of Asheboro First Baptist Church.

We commit ourselves to Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God. We pledge to seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and to bring all areas of our lives under His Lordship.

We pledge to be growing stewards. We promise to help one another develop and use our individual, God-given gifts and to become active and useful fellow-ministers of the church.

We covenant to live in this fellowship as disciples. We will seek to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Savior and to order our lives so as to be witnesses to God’s love and sustaining grace.

We commit ourselves to the regular and faithful worship of God, to the observance of the ordinances, and to the doctrines, disciplines and ministries of the church.

In order to support the ministries of the church and to spread the Gospel to all people, we pledge to contribute cheerfully, regularly, and proportionally of our material possessions.

We covenant to live as Christians in our homes and pledge to engage in family and individual devotions. We will teach our children by instruction and example that Christ is Savior and Lord and that in commitment to Him we find life’s highest purpose.

We covenant to live as Christians in the world, to be Christ-like in our conduct and just in our dealings. We will not knowingly engage in any conduct that may cause another to stumble.

We further covenant to include all people everywhere within the circle of our love and concern. While holding to our Baptist heritage, we shall seek with all Christians a unity of spirit and action.

We moreover engage that, when we relocate from this place, we will, as soon as possible, unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.
