*Call to Worship and Praise Hymn No. 2 Holy, Holy, Holy

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;

Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!

God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!


Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore Thee,

Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;

Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,

Who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.


Holy, holy, holy! Tho’ the darkness hide Thee,

Tho’ the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see;

Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,

Perfect in pow’r, in love, and purity.


Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

All Thy works shall praise Thy name, in earth, and sky, and sea;

Holy, holy, holy; merciful and mighty!

God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

The Ordinance of the Lord’s Supper

Reading of the Church Covenant (projected and inserted)


Salem Baptist Church


Having, as we trust, been brought by divine grace to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and to give up ourselves to him, and having been baptized upon our profession of faith, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, we do now, relying on His gracious aid, solemnly and joyfully renew our covenant with each other.


We will work and pray for the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace with one another. (Eph. 4:1-3)


We will walk together in Christian love, exercising an affectionate care and watchfulness over each other and faithfully encouraging, admonishing and entreating one another as occasion may require, being slow to take offense and being ready always for reconciliation and mindful of the command of our Savior to seek it without delay. (John 13:34-35; 2 Tim. 2:15; 1 Cor. 5:1-2; Heb. 3:12-14)


  1. will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, nor neglect to encourage and pray for ourselves and others. (Heb. 10:23-25)


We will endeavor to bring up our children and those who may at any time be under our care in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and through prayer and by a pure and loving example, to seek the salvation of our loved ones, friends and acquaintances. (Titus 2:1-6; Deut. 6:4-7)


We will rejoice in one another’s happiness and endeavor with tenderness and sympathy to bear one another’s burdens and sorrows. (Rom. 12:15; Gal. 6:2; James 2:14-17)


We will seek, by God’s grace, to live carefully in the world, denying ungodliness and worldly passions which bring unwarranted harm to the church body or jeopardize our own or another’s faith, and remembering that, as we have been voluntarily buried by baptism and raised again to newness of life, so there is on us a special obligation now to lead a new and holy life. (Rom. 12:1-2; Rom. 14:13-18; Eph. 5:15-21; Titus 2:12; 1 Pt. 1:14-16, 2:11-12)


We will work together to maintain a faithful evangelical ministry in this church by upholding the preaching and teaching of the Bible, by the right administration of believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper and, when necessary, by the exercise of church discipline. (Mt. 18:15-20; Acts 2:38; 1 Cor. 5:9-13, 11:26; 2 Tim. 4:2)


We will contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, and the spread of the Gospel to all nations. (2 Cor. 9:7; Gal. 6:10; 1 Jn. 3:17-18)


We will serve one another using the gifts God has granted us in His sovereignty and grace and, in doing so, we will strive always to rely on the power of His Holy Spirit that all glory may be given to Him. (Rom. 12:4-8; 1 Cor. 12:7, 12-13; Jas. 1:27)


We will, if we move from this place, 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. (Heb. 10:23-25)


May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all, to the praise of the glory of God in Christ Jesus,

*Hymn of Affirmation Christ Our Hope in Life and Death

What is our hope in life and death?
Christ alone, Christ alone
What is our only confidence?
That our souls to Him belong

Who holds our days within His hand?
What comes, apart from His command?
And what will keep us to the end?
The love of Christ, in which we stand


O sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal
O sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death


What truth can calm the troubled soul?
God is good, God is good
Where is His grace and goodness known?
In our great Redeemer's blood

Who holds our faith when fears arise?
Who stands above the stormy trial?
Who sends the waves that bring us night
Unto the shore, the rock of Christ?


O sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal
O sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death


Unto the grave, what will we sing?
"Christ, He lives; Christ, He lives!"
And what reward will heaven bring?
Everlasting life with Him

There we will rise to meet the Lord
Then sin and death will be destroyed
And we will feast in endless joy
When Christ is ours forevermore


O sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal
O sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death

O sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal;
O sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death

Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death

*Scripture Reading Isaiah 6


Sermon The Vision of the True King Dr. Heath Rickmond, Pastor

Isaiah 6

  1. The Holy One Who is the Real King
  2. The Humble Confession of Sin
  3. The Herald of God: Isaiah’s Commission
  4. The Holy Seed is Our Hope

*Hymn of Commitment No. 297 Search Me, O God

Search me, O God, and know my heart today;

Try me, O Savior, know my thoughts, I pray.

See if there be some wicked way in me;

Cleanse me from ev’ry sin and set me free.


I praise You, Lord, for cleansing me from sin;

Fulfill Your Word and make me pure within.

Fill me with fire where once I burned with shame;

Grant my desire to magnify Your name.


Lord, take my life, for I would live for You;

Fill my poor heart with Your great love so true.

Take all my will, my passion, self, and pride;

I now surrender; Lord, in me abide.


O Holy Spirit, revival comes from You;

Send a revival, my own heart renew.

Your Word declares You will supply our need;

For blessings now, O Lord, I humbly plead.
