Taken from Shallow Well Church Constitution:

 

 ARTICLE II.    PURPOSE

The avowed purpose of this Church shall be:

  • to worship God, to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to celebrate the Sacraments;      
  • to realize Christian fellowship and unity within this church and the Church Universal;
  • to render loving service toward mankind;
  • to strive for righteousness, justice, and peace.

ARTICLE IV.   FAITH_AND_COVENANT

Faith:   This Church acknowledges as its sole Head, Jesus Christ, the Son of God and the Savior of man. It acknowledges as brothers in Christ all who share in this confession. It looks to the Word of God in the Scriptures, and to the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, to prosper its creative and redemptive work in the world. It claims as its own the faith of the historic Church expressed in the ancient creeds and reclaimed in the basic insights of the Protestant Reformers. It affirms the responsibility of the Church in each generation to make this faith its own. In accordance with the teaching of our Lord and the practice prevailing among evangelical Christians, it recognizes two Sacraments: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper or Holy Communion.

Covenant: We covenant one with another to seek and respond to the Word and the will of God. We purpose to walk together in the ways of the Lord, made known and to be made known to us. We hold it to the mission of the Church to witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ in all the world while worshiping God and striving for truth, justice, and peace. As did our fathers, we depend on the Holy Spirit to lead and empower us. We pray for the coming of the kingdom of God and we look with faith toward the triumph of righteousness and eternal life. We promise as members of the Church to work together in Christian love and in obedience to the teaching of the Holy Scriptures, and to submit to the government of this Church, supporting it with our prayers, attendance and financially to the best of our means and ability until regularly dismissed there from.
