given ourselves to God, by faith in Christ, and adopted the word of God as our rule of faith and practice, we now give ourselves
to one another by the will of God in this solemn covenant.
We promise by his grace to love and obey Him in all
things, to avoid all appearance of evil, to abstain from all sinful amusements and unholy conformity to the world. We agree
faithfully to discharge our obligations in reference to the study of the Scriptures, secret prayer, family devotions,
and public worship and by self-denial, faith, and good works endeavour to "grow in grace and in knowledge of our Lord
and Savior Jesus Christ."
We agree to accept Christian admonition and reproof with meekness,and to watch
over one another in love, endevoring to "keep the unity of the Spirit in bond of peace," to be careful of one another's
happiness and reputation, and seek to strengthen the weak, encourage the afflicted, admonish the erring, and as far as
we are able promote the success of the church and of the Gospel.
We will everywhere hold Christian principles
and obligations supreme, esteem it our chief business to make Christ known to the world, and constantly pray and toil that
the Kingdom of God may come, and His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
May the God of peace sanctify
us wholly, and preserve us blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
