Notwithstanding, and over arching, our Constitution, our Members agree and promise, as adopted September 1, 2019, that
We covenant with the triune God and with one another to walk together
in all ways of God in Christ Jesus, the man of Nazareth, as revealed to
us in the past, as being revealed to us in the present, and as will be
revealed to us in the future.
We promise to walk with all watchfulness and tenderness, to bear and forebear, and give and forgive, as Jesus has taught.
We bind ourselves to study the Gospel in peace, and for peace, for
those who are both within and without our number, neither slighting the
world at large nor laying a stumbling block before any, declaring
ourselves to be a welcoming, inclusive, open and affirming, global
mission, peace and justice church.
We resolve to live in the way that is pleasing to God in our particular
callings; we will not deal unjustly nor oppress any as we recognize
ourselves as stewards of God’s bounty; we promise to our best ability
to teach our children the knowledge of God and the ways of Jesus:
All this we promise, not by any strength of our own, but through the
exemplary life and teaching of Jesus and by the grace of God, keeping
us steadfast in the due performance of this Covenant.
