As we review our Church Covenant, the 2nd paragraph state: “We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this church, in knowledge, holiness, and comfort: to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel through all nations.”
Each member must be in “Good Standing,” within at least a 90-day period, to be eligible to cast a viable vote relating to Ninth Street Baptist Church. We ask each member, as much as possible to be in regular attendance of Sunday Morning Worship, Equipping Hour (Sunday School), and bible study as our corporate moments for worship and study of God’s Word.
We also ask our “members of good standing” to be consistent with their time, talent, and substance.
Colossians 3:23-24 King James Version: 23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
Let us all be accountable, one to another.
