In the fall of 2013, the leadership and congregation of Providence affirmed themselves to twelve covenant points we hold together as a church.
We will strive to grow in our knowledge of God and submit to the Word of God as the authority in our lives and in His church.
We will seek to live loving, holy lives as we grow in Christ-like character.
We will dedicate ourselves to live a life of worship before God, recognizing that all of life is lived out in His presence. We will seek to trust God and show His worth with our minds, our hearts, and our hands.
We will gladly support the Church in its worship, teaching, ministry and discipline, and we will submit to its God-given leadership.
We will regularly observe baptism and participate in communion as we remember the past work of Christ on the cross, celebrate the present work of Christ at the Father’s right hand, and anticipate the future work of Christ in returning for His bride.
We will uphold one another, along with the church’s leaders, ministries, and missionaries, in prayer.
We will give cheerfully and regularly in the financial support of this church, its ministries and obligations.
We will submit to one another out of devotion to Christ, allowing us to love one another, serve one another, encourage one another, share one another’s joys, bear each other’s burdens, and support one another in sickness and distress.
We will seek the good of others by going to our neighborhoods and to the nations to show the love of Christ and share the truth of the gospel.
We will seek to pursue our unity in the Spirit by being patient with one another, by extending grace and forgiveness, and by being ready to seek reconciliation.
We will protect our families and train our children to treasure Christ and seek His will for their lives through instructing and encouraging them in the Scriptures.
We will seek to understand and exercise our spiritual gifts as we serve together as members of the body of Christ.
