Church Covenant

As members of Atlanta Road Alliance Church, we affirm this covenant with one another by God's grace, for our good, and ultimately for God's glory.                                          

Having been brought by divine grace to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and to surrender our lives to Him, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, we do now, relying on His gracious aid, covenant together to glorify God by making disciples of all nations.

Together, we will draw near to God in worship. We will delight in the glory of God, depend on the presence of God, grow in the knowledge of God, and submit to the Word of God as the all-sufficient authority in our lives and in His church.  Knowing and obeying God's Word is fundamental to all true success.

We will hold fast to the hope we profess in Jesus Christ.  We will regularly participate in communion as we solemnly and joyfully remember the past work of Christ on the cross, celebrate the present work of Christ at the Father's right hand, and anticipate the future work of Christ in His return for His bride.

We promise to adhere to the Christian & Missionary Alliance Statement of Faith, and we will work and pray for the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.  We will meet together consistently, and walk together in brotherly love as a church body.  We will serve one another selflessly, share each other's joys, and bear each other's burdens.

We will give cheerfully and generously to the support of the church, relief to those in need of care, and the spread of the Gospel to all nations.  Everything we have belongs to God.  We are only stewards.

We will pray for one another and for the lost within our community and around the world.  Lost people matter to God, He wants them found.  And prayer is the primary work of God's people.

We will follow Christ and participate in Jesus' Great Commission to make disciples both locally and globally.  Completing the Great Commission will require the mobilization of every fully devoted disciple. Achieving God's purposes involves taking faith-filled risks.

We will humbly submit to the church pastors and elders who provide shepherding care in our walk with Christ. We will follow the guidelines from Peacemaker ministries if, for any reason, we have a conflict with church leadership. We will respectfully listen and humbly accept corrective discipline from church leadership. And if we move from this local body, we will as soon as possible, unite with another local church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.

In all that we strive to live by as a church and participate in Jesus' Great Commission, we will depend fully on the Holy Spirit for strength and power.  Without the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, we can accomplish nothing.  May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all. Amen.
