Acknowledging Jesus Christ to be our Savior and Lord and accepting the Holy Scriptures as our rule of faith and practice, and recognizing the privilege and duty of uniting ourselves for Christian fellowship, the enjoyment of Christian sacraments, the public worship of God, and the advancement of His Kingdom in the wold, we do now, in the sight of God and invoking His blessings, solemnly covenant and agree with each other to associate ourselves to be a Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, as warranted by the Word of God.

we agree to maintain the institutions of the Gospel, to submit ourselves to the orderly administration of the affairs of the Church, and to walk together in loving fellowship. And this we do, depending upon the aid of our Heavenly Father, who so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son for our salvation, and of Jesus Christ who has redeemed us, and of the Holy Spirit, our Comforter and Guide.
