We believe that our call to be a church is a call to witness for Jesus Christ in the world. Whenever people are in bondage to ignorance, poverty, fear, or prejudice, we shall strive for justice, freedom, dignity, and peace. Whenever people are separated by barriers of hostility and distrust, we shall endeavor to be ministers of God's reconciling love. In fulfillment of the command of Christ to proclaim the Gospel to all people, we pledge our support of the mission outreach of the Church. We also pledge that, when we move from this place, we will, as soon as possible, unite with another church in which we can continue to carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.
