As Christ Jesus is the Lord of love, peace and unity among us, this church accepts the following persuaded attitude of fellowship: We have been led by the Holy Spirit to receive Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, and on the basis of our faith in His finished work of salvation, we thank God the Father that we can totally depend on, and trust in Him to accomplish His good, acceptable, and perfect will in us. As we are empowered by the indwelling Holy Spirit, we seek to live our lives in conformity to God's Will and Word. As we walk in, and are led by the Holy Spirit, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control will be evident in our lives. As such, our desire is to care for and counsel one another in the spirit of brotherly love, to pray for one another, to comfort and aid each other, and to practice the love of God as the natural result of being new creations in Jesus Christ. According to this understanding, we recognize that in Christ we are under grace and not obligated to law; and as such we owe no man anything but to love one another as Christ has loved us. Therefore, joined together by this greater love in Christ, we accept the unity of this fellowship in accomplishing the Will of God; spreading and sharing the Gospel of Christ through all nations, and contributing to the support of the ministry and the expenses of this church as it endeavors to relieve the poor and serve the community.
