|Thanking God for the light we have
received and for the revelation of Jesus which we now enjoy, and hoping
that God, for Christ's sake, has pardoned our sins, and having been
baptized on a profession of our faith in Christ Jesus, into the name of
the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, we do always, before God and the world,
with deep joy and great solemnity, enter into and covenant with one
another as one body in Christ.
We therefore covenant and agree, that by the aid of the Holy Spirit, we will walk together in love and Christian fellowship.
We promise to labor for the advancement and final triumph of the church.
To sustain her worship by attending the house of God and supporting the ministry; to further her prosperity by contributing of our means and ability for the development of her interest.
To guard her ordinances, enforce her discipline, and defend her doctrine.
We also pledge ourselves to walk circumspectly before the world, to be honest, just and faithful in our business relations, and as God may give us help, to live righteous and holy lives.
We further promise to watch over each other in brotherly love, to visit the sick, and administer to their necessities, so far as our own circumstances will permit, and the nature of the case may require.
To pray for each other and for the unregenerate. To aid poor and needy persons, and do such other offices of kindness as the example of Christ teaches us that he will be pleased with.
To study God's word, and endeavor to obey its teaching. To send the gospel to those who have it not, and teach its truths whenever we have opportunity.
