Our Practical commitment 

Spiritual Example

We will demonstrate our commitment to Christ through our practice of the spiritual disciplines; we will demonstrate our commitment to the body of Christ through our loyalty to God and commitment to His church; and we will demonstrate our commimtment to the work of Christ through our being good stewards.

Moral Purity 

We will engage in those activities which glorify God in our body and which avoid the fulfillment of the lust of the flesh. We will read, watch and listen to those things which are of positive benefit to our spiritual well-being. 

Personal Integrity 

We will live in a manner that inspires trust and confidence, bearing the fruit of the Spirit and seeking to manifest the character of Christ in all our behavior. 

Family Responsibility 

We will give priority to fulfilling family responsibilities, to preserving the sanctity of marriage and to maintaining divine order in the home. 

Behavioral Temperance 

We will practice temperance in behavior and will abstain from activities and attitudes which are offensive to our fellowman or which lead to addiction or enslavement. 

Modest Appearance 

We will demonstrate the scriptural principle of modesty by appearing and dressing in a manner that will enhance our Christian testimony and will avoid pride, elaborateness or sensuality. 

Social Obligation

It should be our objective to fulfill our obligations to society by being good citizens, by correcting social injustices, and by protecting the sanctity of life. 

 

we observe holy communion

We observe Communion because the Lord told us to.  We are to obey His commands: "And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me."  1 Corinthians 11:24 (KJV)

 

In observing Communion we are remembering Christ and all that He has done for us in his life, death and resurrection: "And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me."  1 Corinthians 11:24 (KJV)

 

When observing Communion we take time to examine ourselves: "But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup."  1 Corinthians 11:28 (KJV)

 

In observing Communion we are proclaiming His death until He comes.  It is, then, a statement of faith: "For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come."  1 Corinthians 11:26 (KJV)

 

When we observe Communion we show our participation in the body of Christ.  His life becomes our life and we become members of each other: "The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?  For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread."  1 Corinthians 10:16-17 (KJV)
