Lifetime Covenant Partnership
COVENANT PARTNERSHIP: St. Paul "Douglass" Baptist Church, Memphis, Tennessee and the Church of the Living God, Inc.
Having been led, as I believe by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior and, on the profession of my faith, having been baptized
in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, I do now, in the presence of God, and the assembly of Saint Paul "Douglass" Missionary
Baptist Church jointly with Church of the Living God, Bishop Maggie Campbell, and my family, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant
with this church and one another as one body of Christ.
We engage to maintain family values in accordance with God's Word and secret devotion; to religiously and faithfully educate our children,
to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our
engagements, and exemplary in our deportment; to avoid all tattling, backbiting, and excessive anger; to abstain from the sale of, and use
of, intoxicating drinks as a beverage; to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior.
We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk together in Christian love; to edify the Word of God, to strive for the advancement
of this church, in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinance, discipline,
and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the
spread of the gospel through all nations.
We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember one another in sickness and distress; to cultivate
Christian sympathy in feelings and Christian courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation and
mindful of the rules of our Savior to secure it without delay.
We further engage that when we remove 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.
