Having been led by the Spirit to profess our faith in Jesus Christ, and having been baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, we solemnly and joyfully affirm our covenant with God and with each other.
We pledge to serve Christ in fellowship of Springhill United Baptist Church , while striving to love one another, pray for one another, and share with one another in joy and in hardship.
We are in agreement with the Mission Statement of the Church:
“To glorify God as we draw others to Christ,
and His family, and to help one another grow
in obedience and service to Him.”
We will seek to be responsible church members, faithful in attendance, in personal spiritual growth, in ministry and in giving.
We will seek to be obedient to Christ in our daily living, and will strive in our homes, at work, and in all of our activities, to maintain attitudes and actions which will reflect God’s Spirit working through us -with God’s help, avoiding experiences and habits that dishonor Christ and hinder the witness of the church, and embracing experiences and habits that are honoring and helpful.
We will pray for, and work toward a spirit of unity among all who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
We will dedicate ourselves, both individually and as a church, to bring justice, freedom, dignity, and peace to all people, and to be ministers of God’s reconciling love.
We will support the spreading of the Good News of Jesus Christ throughout the world in partnership with the Convention of Atlantic Baptists and Canadian Baptist Ministries.
Acknowledging our human frailties and ever seeking forgiveness, we profess our need of the Holy Spirit, and commit our lives to Jesus Christ, and through Him to the care, the judgement, the deliverance, and the mercy of Almighty God. Amen.
The original Springhill Baptist Church…before the fire.
