Our Covenant

Believing in God, our heavenly Father, and accepting his only begotten son Jesus Christ as our Savior, we unite in this church for worship, fellowship, study, and service, combining our energies that we may further the purposes of our Lord more effectively.

We will strive at all times to walk in the way of Christ and in every circumstance to follow his example in both outward and inner life. We will cultivate a reverent and prayerful mind and a heart attentive to the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

We will seek to live together in brotherly love, sharing one another's joys and burdens. We will seek constantly to commend Christ to all men by our manner of living and we accept as our privilege the sharing of the Gospel with others, in our family, our community, and our world.

We will support this church by our prayers, by our regular attendance at its services, and by our cheerful contribution of time, thought and substance.

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. These things we now covenant to do, the Lord helping us by his grace. We fervently pray that he who has begun a good work in us will be with us in all our journeys.

Rita Carrigan

Church Administrator

Rita Carrigan joined the staff in 2012. Having a business degree didn't prepare her for the diverse position within the church but she has come to love the members of the church, the spirituality surrounding the job, along with the "be prepared for anything" nature of the job.

Abington Baptist Church was formed by the merger of Tioga Baptist Church of Philadelphia and Jenkintown Baptist Church of Jenkintown, PA on May 26, 1961. In the summer of 1959, Temple University informed Tioga Baptist Church of their plans to construct a medical research center and offered to buy the church property. After consulting the greater Philadelphia Council of Churches (PCC), Tioga was advised to relocate in Abington Township, “a fast growing area that was under-churched.”
