Church Covenant

God established a covenant relationship, first with his people--Israel, and then a new covenant with His people--the church.(1) Therefore, as members of God's covenant family known as Crossroads Church, we commit ourselves to God and to one another to be Christ like in our lives and relationships through the presence, guidance, and power of God's Holy Spirit. (2)

We will love one another as Christ loved us,(3) honor one another above ourselves,(4) be kind and compassionate to one another,(5) encourage and build up one another,(6) comfort one another,(7) and offer hospitality to one another.(8)

We will have a spirit of unity based on our common bond in Christ,(9) be united in mind and convictions,(10) meet together regularly,(11) have equal concern for each other, suffer when one suffers and rejoice when another is honored,(12) and consider others more important than ourselves.(13)

We will use our God-given knowledge to instruct one another,(14) use our spiritual gifts to bless one another,(15) use the Word of Christ to teach and admonish one another,(16) and nurture one another toward spiritual maturity measured by the life and ministry of Jesus.(17)

We will confess our sins to one another, pray for each other,(18) warn those who are idle, encourage the discouraged, help the weak, be patient with one another,(19) forgive one another as the lord forgave us,(20) and gently restore those who sin.(21)

We will not talk negatively about one another,(22) not pass judgment on one another, not put any stumbling block in one another's way,(23) not be morally impure, not use obscenities, not be greedy,(24) but we will be filled with the Spirit.(25)

We will let the light of godly lives shine together to bring glory to God.(26)
