Church Covenant 

Coastal Family Bible Church Covenant

We exist to pre­serve and pro­claim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to make mature dis­ci­ples of all nations for the glory of God.

We believe God, in His infi­nite wis­dom and sov­er­eign grace has called and joined together every mem­ber of Coastal Family Bible Church as a vis­i­ble expres­sion of His Church on the earth. As a result, we agree to work and to pray for the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (Eph. 1:22, Eph. 4:3, Jn. 17:21–23, 1 Pt. 3:8, Ro. 14:19, 1 Cor. 1:10, Col. 3:13–15, Heb. 12:14)

We will uphold the statement of faith, ordi­nances, and dis­ci­pline of the church. We will sub­mit to the rec­og­nized lead­er­ship. We will admon­ish those who are dis­obe­di­ent to the Word, encour­age the timid, help the weak, exer­cise patience toward all, and work for rec­on­cil­i­a­tion. We will ask God for grace to speak, think, and act toward one another in love at all times. (Heb.13:17, 1 Thess. 5:14, 1 Cor. 13, Col. 1:11)

We will sup­port God’s work in and through CFBC by cheer­fully, reg­u­larly, and humbly giv­ing our time, tal­ents, and trea­sures. We will serve with the strength God sup­plies, that in every­thing God may be glo­ri­fied through Jesus Christ. (2 Cor. 9:7, Acts 2:44–45, Acts 20:35, 1 Pt. 4:11)

We will meet reg­u­larly to wor­ship God, to edify one another, and to guard our­selves against the deceit­ful­ness of sin. When we move from this place, we will unite with another local church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the prin­ci­ples of God’s Word. (Heb. 10:25, 3:13, 1 Thess. 5:11, Eph. 4:29–32)

We will ful­fill the law of Christ by bear­ing one another’s bur­dens, rejoic­ing with those who rejoice, and mourn­ing with those who mourn. (Gal. 6:2, Rom. 12:15, John 13:34)

We will strive to make true dis­ci­ples of Christ begin­ning in our homes and spheres of influ­ence by shar­ing the mes­sage of rec­on­cil­i­a­tion entrusted to us when­ever and wher­ever God gives oppor­tu­nity. We will build multi­gen­er­a­tional faith­ful­ness by telling the com­ing gen­er­a­tion the glo­ri­ous deeds of the Lord, and His might, and the won­ders that He has done. (2 Cor 5:18–20; Matt. 28:18–20; Ro. 10:14–15, Ps. 78:4–7)

We will live in a man­ner wor­thy of the Lord, to please Him in every way: bear­ing fruit in every good work, grow­ing in the knowl­edge of God, being strength­ened with all His power; that the watch­ing world may observe our holy and dis­tinct lives and glo­rify our Father in heaven. (Col. 1:10–12, Matt. 5:16, Phil 2:14–15, 2 Thess. 1:10–12, 1 Pet. 2:12)

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fel­low­ship of the
Holy Spirit be with us all. Amen. (2 Cor. 13:14)
