Our Commitment to You

Click on a Bible passage reference to read it on BibleGateway.com (in a new window or tab)

God presented the Israelites with Ten Commandments for living that still hold true to this day. I would like to suggest we use that same number (ten), which represents completeness in the Old Testament, to establish ten commitments for a church to adhere to in order to serve Christ faithfully:

  1. Commitment to teach the Word of God as written in the Bible.
  2. Commitment to the doctrine of justification by faith alone (Romans 1:17).
  3. Commitment to equality regarding color, gender, age, and nationality.
  4. Commitment to pursue a biblical lifestyle.
  5. Commitment to serve the poor and needy.
  6. Commitment to making time available for questions regarding scripture.
  7. Commitment to daily Bible teaching and to helping each individual develop basic skills to interpret scripture on their own.
  8. Commitment to small group study, prayer, and fellowship.
  9. Commitment by church leadership to prayer and to establish a twenty-four hour prayer Chain.
  10. Commitment to open discussion and sharing with those having differing religious views.
