Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior; and on the profession of our faith. Having been baptized, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. We do now, in the presence of God, angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ. We promise, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this church, in its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly of my income to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, the spreading of the Gospel through all nations, through this church. We also promise to maintain family and secret devotion; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk cautiously in the world, to be just in our dealings, faithful to our obligations, and commendable in out conduct; to avoid all tattling, backbiting, and excessive anger; to abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks, and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the Kingdom of our Savior. We further promise to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress, to develop Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Savior, to secure it without delay. We moreover promise that when we remove from this place, we will as soon as possible unite with some other church of like faith, where we can carry out the spirit of this Covenant, and the principles of God’s word.
