For the preaching
of the cross
is to them that perish
but unto us
which are saved
it is the
power of God.
I Corinthians 1:18 (KJV)
San Antonio Community Church Covenant
Having been led by God’s Holy Spirit to receive Jesus Christ by faith as our Lord and Savior and having professed that faith and, in obedience to the teachings of the scriptures, having been baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we now covenant together in the presence of God to join with each other as one body, San Antonio Community Church.
We commit ourselves, by His Holy Spirit, to love one another as God has loved us, serving one another as was demonstrated by Jesus Christ, so that by our love the world may know that we are His church and come to know the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We commit ourselves, by His Holy Spirit, to be salt and light to a hurting world, raising our children in the nurture and admonition of the scriptures and, through words and deeds and offferings, giving witness to our families, our community and our world of the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We commit ourselves, by His Holy Spirit, to be imitators of Christ, forgiving one another, praying for one another, teaching and admonishing one another, and assembling together in fellowship for the worship of our Lord in Spirit and in Truth.
We commit ourselves, by His Holy Spirit, to be neither cold nor lukewarm, remembering our first love, seeking only God’s glory in all of our endeavors, being active members of the body of Christ, the church, and, should we be moved from this place, to join ourselves with another local church where we may continue the spirit of this covenant.
We commit ourselves, by His Holy Spirit, to “make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.”
May the Spirit bind us together as we build this house of faith:
One in heart and one in spirit, may we grow.
May we raise our voices in witness, may our lives reflect Thy grace:
One in heart and one in spirit, as we go.
