The original Covenant of the Church of Christ in Lebanon, upon which this Church was constituted on November 27, 1700.
In serious sense of our indispensable duty to answer to the call of Christ, who notwithstanding our sinfulness and unfitness by nature, inviting us to partake of the covenant of grace, not only in the internal but in the external privileges thereof, as we have obtained belief of God: we do avouch the Lord to be our God, giving ourselves to the Lord, and unto one another, and to bear witness against sin, to walk in the ordinances of Christ and uphold the worship of God in this place, subjecting to the discipline of Christ: we do also give up our children to him, promising to bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Interpretation of the Original Covenant as Formulated in 1983.
Recognizing our need for guidance in our lives we accept the Lord as our God. We accept His grace, which frees us to do His will, we bind ourselves to the Triune God and to one another. We promise to share Christian concern for all persons near and far, to be directed by God’s truth now accepted and yet to be revealed, and to lead our children in Christian ways.
