We, the members of Maranatha Community Church, being in substantial agreement with each other on basic Biblical doctrines, do hereby covenant with each other before God that, as He enables us:

As individuals within the church we will

Take the Bible and the commandments of God as our sole guide of faith and practice, in order to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.

As families within the church we will

Pursue family unity and happiness – praying together, seeking the will of the Lord together, and bringing up our children in the nurture and correction of the Lord.

As a congregation we will

Commit to weekly worship and fellowship – sharing our time, talents, and resources for the good of all.

For our neighbors we will

Share the Gospel with our families, friends, and those God places in our path; encouraging them to grow and mature in their walk with God. We will do our best to live out the Gospel at work, play, home and in the community through our words, deeds and attitudes, bringing honor to the body of Christ through our testimony.

For our fellow members we will

Help one another grow toward Christian maturity by serving one another, practicing humility, speaking truth in love, living in peace with one another, and regarding others as more important than ourselves.
