Here are Community Baptist Church of Alma our purpose is to unselfishly be Christ-like in our daily living by emphasizing total commitment of life, personality, and possessions to the lordship of Christ. Where we worship and fellowship together, to experience an increasingly meaningful fellowship with God and fellow believers. To help people experience a growing knowledge of God and man. A church that ministers unselfishly to those in the community and world in Jesus' name. Experiencing an awareness of God, recognizing His person, and responding in obedience to His leadership.
Having been led, as we believe by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and, on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we do now in the presence of God 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 hold the Holy Scriptures as our guide for faith, daily living, and church relationships; to strive for the advancements of this church in knowledge, holiness and comfort; to promote this prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, doctrines, and discipline; 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 devotions; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to avoid any and all action which would compromise or damage our witness and example to the lost, and to other Christians so that all that we do will be done to the glory of God; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportment; 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 one another in prayer; to aid one another in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and Christian courtes yin speech; to be slow to take offense, nut 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.
The Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the basis for any statement of faith. The church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of "The Baptist Faith and Message" as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000. We bond ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to lost mankind. The ordinances of the church are Baptism and the Lord's Supper.
