"Where We Are Going and The Church We Want to Be"
Our Love for God
We engage to cultivate a devotional life, both individually and in public worship. We will seek to rear our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and seek the salvation of our families, friends, and acquaintances. We also commit ourselves to seek to walk in personal obedience on every path which the Lord may set our feet.
Our Love for One Another
We commit ourselves, therefore, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love, to watch over each other as brothers and sisters, to help each other in times of sickness or distress, to cultivate Christian sympathy of feeling and courtesy in speech, to be slow to take offense, always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the commands of our Savior to secure that reconciliation without delay.
Our Service to Our Community
Central Park Baptist Church
We engage to strive for the advancement of God's kingdom, in knowledge, holiness and comfort. We will promote its prosperity by our giving and its spirituality by our living. We will sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines by our attendance and participation. We will contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of its ministry, its expenses and its mission.
World around Us
We also commit ourselves to live as Christ's Witnesses and Followers in the world around us. We understand this to mean being just in our dealings, faithful in our commitments and exemplary in our moral and ethical choices. We commit ourselves to a proper zeal in our efforts to advance the Kingdom of God, both individually and as a congregation, in concert with other Christ Followers of our own or like persuasion.
