Covenant Agreement

The Partnership is a vision of the Central Congo Episcopal Area and three United States Conferences: Peninsula-Delaware Conference, Eastern Pennsylvania Conference, and Western North Carolina Conference to bring glory to God and care for our neighbors. Our Partnership seeks to bring the renewal and restoration of spiritual and material ministries for the whole Church and especially its children. The Christ’s Church has been given the commission to be a sign of hope in a world that is perishing, a sign that the dominion of division, destitution, despair and death is being overcome through the love of God that is poured out in our hearts and made manifest by our deeds. Through this partnership we have the opportunity to give dramatic testimony to the unity of the Body of Christ, the mutuality of love, and the promise of life that overcomes death.

 

The purpose of the Partnership is to develop a healthy relationship between brothers and sisters in Christ across cultures through God’s grace that is transformational and inspirational.

 

The goal of the Partnership is to have honest and open interaction with the partners, carefully listening to one another as equal parts of the body of Christ. It is a sacred covenant to support one another and participate equally and proportionally in a ministry or project. We agree to pray for one another and to value the spiritual gifts and faith each brings to the partnership, acknowledging these as equal to, or even more important than, financial and human resources. The goal of the mission is a self-sustaining United Methodist Church with holistic ministries empowering people in their context, community and country.

 

The partners will set aside their own agendas and create a collective vision for the ministry together.  As with any relationship, each participant brings God-given gifts, whether spiritual, physical or mental, tangible or intangible, which will be honored and appreciated equally by all partners in the covenant agreement.

 

We pledge not to do for the other what they can do for themselves. We gladly serve each other as Christ has served us, with humility, love and encouragement, building a strong foundation for the ministry together.

 

We create mutual accountability and transparency through patiently engaging one another. We will be flexible and adaptable, enabling all partners to bridge language and culture through God’s guidance.
