The Covenant of Fellowship helps to ensure that True Gnostics work faithfully, joyfully
and effectively together as a quorum of justified true believers. The True Gnostic
Church is a place where the children of God can unite, and in a state of Oneness,
create lasting, beneficial change on this earth. Members of the True Gnostic Church
consider one another as family and strive to foster relationships founded in honesty,
guidance, love, respect and support.
The following describes how the Covenant of Fellowship
may be enacted within the True Gnostic Church.
1. Staying in touch (phone calls, visits, community gatherings)
2. Group study and prayer
3. Mutual encouragement and support
4. Courtesy, manners and respect
5. Showing true compassion and benevolence towards each other
6. Building up, not tearing down. Focusing on strengths, not weaknesses
7. Speaking the truth always with gentleness
8. Just good old friendship
For you have but one which is your Father and he is God, and you have but one which
would bear you up, even as a Mother, even the Holy Spirit which descends upon you.
And all they which would follow after me, even they are become as your brothers,
or sisters, or children, or husband, or wife, or houses, or lands; even so much that
you shall not have room enough to receive them.
How then shall the true Fellowship of God reveal itself unto those who yearn to find
themselves a home? In what manner shall you comport yourself towards those who believe
as you do?
For in the true Fellowship of God are even all made as one through covenant, which
covenant would forge together a single heart and mind, reflecting through good fellowship
the family of God on earth.
Hear me then and I will tell you, to set before you a good example worthy of emulation;
for in the meeting of a brother or a sister within the Fellowship of God, let it
be the custom to embrace each other and to give to each a holy kiss upon the cheek,
being each to each filled with joyful greetings.
Be you then most happy eager in seeking each the other, establishing well through
daily doings the fellowship that you owe; becoming yourself as one most constant,
a light within the fold filled with joy and grace.
For this I tell you for your learning, that in fellowship is there found the beginnings
of godly grace, being itself pure and undefiled, having as its only aim the care
of those you meet; creating deep within the heart the bond of true affection, which
affection would bind together even all who would come seeking, to make you one with
