At TMBC, we seek to deepen our relationship with God by discovering biblical truths and applying them to our lives.
Having been led by the grace of God through the life-giving power of the Holy Spirit to repent of our sins and in faith turn to Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and having given public testimony of this faith through baptism by immersion, we now joyfully and solemnly enter into this covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.
We commit to affirm and follow the Statement of Faith and this Church Covenant, to walk together in love, to remember one another in prayer, to help one another in times of need, to exercise gentleness and humility in our responsibilities and commitments, to be just and honest in our dealings, and to honor ourselves and others for Christ’s sake through personal integrity and to abstain from things or practices which bring harm to ourselves, to our faith or the faith of another.
In the obedience of scripture, we further commit to give to the ministry of the Church through regular tithes, offerings and willing service. We pledge to do so with a generous spirit and a thankful, cheerful heart. We further pledge to be continually reconciled one to another, forgiving each other in sincere and genuine love, as Christ forgave us. Bound together, we commit to use our God given, spiritual gifts in service to build up the body of Christ, to bear each other’s burdens and support each other in continual prayer.
As a family of believers, we commit to obey the Great Commission by reaching out to the local community, our state, the nation and around the globe as ambassadors of Christ, to practice personal and family worship, and to train our children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
We have read and agree to be bound by the Articles, Constitution and By-laws of Turner Memorial Baptist Church.
