We are a community of Christians who live according to holy obligations which we believe are true to the character of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are called to humility, purity, justice and truth because Jesus modeled these for us. Along with the privileges and blessings of membership in such a community come responsibilities. The members of the Alton Bay Campmeeting Association take these responsibilities seriously.
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” (2 Timothy 3:16)
The biblical foundation of Christian community is expressed in Jesus’ two great commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind,” and, “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Matt: 22:37-40). Jesus himself perfectly demonstrated the pattern: love for God, acted out in love for others, in obedience to God’s Word. Acknowledging our dependence on the power and grace of God, the members of the Alton Bay Campmeeting Association humbly covenant to endeavor to live according to this ideal.
