Covenant Sunday 11/21/21
All over the Bible we see people entering into covenants. Tabor also has a covenant document. Below you will find the full covenant.
Tabor Lutheran Church Covenant
By the Spirit of God, we have received the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, we do now in the presence of God and this church most solemnly and joyfully enter into this Covenant with one another as one body in Christ. We engage therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit:
To walk together in Christian love and exercise Christian care and watchfulness over one another; To love and to pray for all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ; To pray with and for one another, sharing our burdens, sorrows, and joys; To be thoughtful and courteous to one another, to be slow to take offense, and to be quick to forgive and to seek forgiveness;
To guard the spiritual and Scriptural purity, peace, prosperity of the Church, and to promote its usefulness as a witness to the saving grace of God through Christ Jesus; To assist, through the gifts of the Spirit, in the work of the Church and to promote its usefulness as a witness to the saving grace of God and Christ Jesus; To contribute, as the Lord directs, to the financial support of the Church, the relief of the needy, and evangelism of all people;
To engage regularly in personal Bible reading and prayer, and to establish family devotions where possible; To bring up such children as may be entrusted to our care in the nurture and admonition of the Lord;
To walk circumspectly in the world, to provide things honest in the sight of all men, to be faithful in engagements, exemplary in deportment, denying ungodliness and worldly lust; To endeavor by example, by work, and by prayer, to be in relationship with Jesus as Savior and Lord;
To purpose that when we remove ourselves 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.
