Rules of Conduct

The following are our rules of conduct

1

Never come to the House of God without praying before coming. Matt 6:7, Eph 6:18 

2

Be in your seat at the commencement of the service. You will thus be a good example to those who are late and neglectful. Gen 22:3, Ps 108:2, Prov 8:17, Song of Sol 7:12. 

3

Bring your children with you to the House of God. Relatives and servants also have souls. It is your duty and privilege to take care of them. Matt 11:14, Exod 22:10, Acts 10:24, John 1:41,45, Gen 18:19. 

4

Make your Pastor your personal friend. His sympathy, support and counsel are needed by you. Constantly pray for him. 1 Thess 2:7, Joel 2:17, Mal 2:7, Rom 15:30, 2 Cor 1:11, Eph 6:19, Heb 13:17 

5

Make the Church your spiritual home. Acts 2:46-47, Psalm 133:1. 

6

When conversing never speak disrespectfully or criticizingly of God’s servants or their ministrations, in the presence of your children. If you sow to the wind, you may expect to reap the whirlwind. Gal 6:7, Prov 22:8, Hos 8:7. 

7

Take your Bible with you to the House of God. Ps 1:2, 119:16, 72, Rom 15:4, 2 Tim 3:16-17.

Enter reverently, pray fervently, listen attentively, give praise from a grateful heart and worship God in the beauty of holiness. Ps 118:27-29, Ecc 5:1, Rom 12:11, James 1:19
