      encourage one another as the case shall require;

3.  To faithfully assemble ourselves for prayer, study and public worship;

4.  To participate in each other’s joys; to endeavor with tenderness and sympathy to bear 
     each other’s burdens and sorrows; and to affirm in one another the gifts of the Spirit;

5.  To earnestly endeavor to nurture our children in a knowledge of the love and 
     commandments of God as revealed in Jesus Christ through the Biblical record and to 
     seek and guide their growth in Christian stature;

6.  To walk in the world in the love of Christ and under the guidance of His Spirit, not to 
     be conformed to the world, but to be faithful children of God;

7.  To faithfully present the meaning of redemption and to touch people of all ages with 
     the love of God in Jesus Christ that their lives may be transformed by the Spirit 
     through all our words and activities;

8.  To support a faithful ministry of Christian outreach and social justice in the world and 
      in this place in accordance with the Baptist witness and in cooperation with the whole 
      family of faith;

9.  To live in all our ways to the glory of Him who called us out of darkness into His 
      marvelous light.
