Good News Church Covenant

We believe we have been led by the Holy Spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus as our Saviour, and we have publicly professed our faith through baptism in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit; we do now, in the presence of God, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another as one body in Christ. 


We will endeavour, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to love each other as Christ commanded His disciples; to remember each other in prayer, to help each other in sickness and in trouble; to be sympathetic and courteous; to be slow to take offence and quick to forgive. We will strive to witness of our faith to our family, friends and neighbours; to be just in our dealings; to be truthful in all we say; to be an example of Christian virtue to others in our conduct and by example. 


We will strive for the advancement of the Kingdom of God and his Church in this community; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to support its efforts, to attend church services regularly, to educate our children in the teaching and practice of God’s Word and our faith.

We will endeavour, as we have received the Lord Jesus Christ, to walk in Him and may the God of peace sanctify us wholly to Himself for His Son’s sake. Amen.
