Our Covenant

 

          HAVING been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our savior, and on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, we do now, in the presence of God, angels and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.

 

            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.

 

            WE ALSO ENGAGE to maintain family and secret devotion; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements and exemplary in our deportment; to avoid all tattling, backbiting and excessive anger; to abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drink as a beverage and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior.

 

            WE FURTHER ENGAGE to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation and mindful of the rules of our Savior, to secure it without delay.

 

            WE MOREOVER ENGAGE that, when we remove from this place, we will as soon as possible unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.

 

            And now unto Him, who brought again from the dead, Our Lord Jesus be Power and Glory forever.  Amen.

 

On November 14, 2014, a group of 16 believers met to discuss spiritual matters. We came to realize the importance of continuing to grow and mature spiritually with the freedom to worship God in spirit and in truth. We were seeking to: (1) increase our knowledge and understanding of God’s word; (2) increase our practice of Christ-like qualities; and, (3) increase our faith and trust in God. In essence, we were seeking to be Christ-like in our interactions with one another, our families and our community. Solid Rock Missionary Baptist Church was born out of those beliefs. On December 5, 2014, Solid Rock Missionary Baptist Church was incorporated. We called Rev. Thomas A. Keys as the Pastor-Teacher of Solid Rock. On January 4, 2015, we held our first worship service. On February 1, 2015, we held our first baptism. On March 22, 2015, we held our first baby dedication. On October 2, 2016, we moved into our new temporary building at 8000 Derry Street. God has blessed us immeasurably. We are free to worship God in the manner that He intended for us to worship Him. In December 2016, SRMBC purchased 4.6 acres of land at 2400 Locust Lane in the Edgemont section of Susquehanna Township in suburban Harrisburg.
