"Winning Souls and Strengthening Families by the Word of God"
"To preach and teach the Word of God and to demonstate faith in love through our actions so that individual Christians and families would be strengthening by our Christian witness and to win unbelivers to lead them into the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ".
Being led, by the Spirit of God, whom have received the Lord Jesus, the Christ as our Savior, and on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of Jesus, the Greater Grace Family Ministries Church do now in the presence of God, angels and this assembly, solemnly and joyfully enter covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.
Greater Grace Family Ministries Church join, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the development and advancement of the church in knowledge and holiness; giving it place in our affections, prayers and services above every organization of human origin; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrine; to contribute cheerfully and regularly, as God has prospered us, towards its expenses, for the support of a faithful and evangelical ministry among us, the relief of the poor and the spread of the Gospel throughout the world. In case of difference of opinion in the church, we will strive to avoid a quarrelsome spirit, and if we can not unanimously agree, we will cheerfully recognize the right of the Word of God, to govern us under the direction of Bishop Edward Barnett, and whoever Bishop Barnett delegates to govern.
The Greater Grace Family Ministries Church will maintain family and secret devotion; to study diligently to the word of God; to biblically educate ourselves and our children; to seek the salvation of our whole family and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly among all people in the world; to be kind and just, and faithfully serve. We promise to exemplify and commend our holy faith.
The Greater Grace Family Ministries Church further join to watch over, to pray for, to exhort and stir up each other unto every good word and work; to guard each other's reputation, not needlessly exposingthe infirmities of others; to participate in each other's joys, and with tender love, bear one another'sburdens and sorrows; to cultivate Christian courtesy; being mindful of the rules of the Savior, in Matthew18th chapter, to secure it without delay; and through life, reject evil report, holding to that which is good,to seek to live to the glory of God, who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light. If we remove ourselves from the family of Greater Grace Family Ministries Church, we will engage as soon aspossible to unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's word.
