What Membership Means

As members of The First Baptist Church of the City of Washington, D.C., we have confessed Jesus as our Lord and Savior and have been voluntarily baptized as a witness of our faith in God.  As members we enter into a covenant agreement with one another in the presence of God, recognizing that we must depend on God's gracious aid to be able to keep it.  The covenant's purpose is to put forth how we will work together as members of the Body of Christ at First Baptist.  We renew our covenant on the first Sunday of every month as we begin our service of communion:

Church Covenant of the First Baptist Church of the City of Washington, D.C.

Having been brought by Divine Grace to receive the Lord Jesus Christ, and to give up ourselves to Him,

And remembering that as we have been voluntarily baptized and united in Christian experience, so there is on us a special obligation, henceforth, to lead a new and holy life.

We do now, relying on His gracious aid, solemnly covenant with one another:

That we will walk together in Christ-like love as becomes the members of a Christian church;

That we will exercise an affectionate care and watchfulness over, and faithfully admonish and entreat one another as occasion may require;

That we will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, nor neglect to pray for ourselves and others;

That we will endeavor to bring up those under our care in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and by a pure and lovely example to win our kindred and acquaintances to the Saviour, to holiness, and to eternal life;

That we will rejoice in one another's happiness, and endeavor with tenderness and sympathy to bear one another's burdens and sorrows;

That we will seek by Divine aid to live circumspectly in the world, practicing and advocating temperance, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts;

That we will strive together, and contribute of our means for the support of a faithful evangelical ministry, and for the spread of the Redeemer's Kingdom among all persons;

And that through life, amidst evil report and good report, we will humbly and earnestly seek to live to glorify Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.
