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 ENGAGE, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian Love; to
strive for the advancement of this church, in knowledge, holiness and comfort; to promote
its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines; to
contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the
church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel through all nations.

WE ALSO ENGAGE to maintain family and secret devotions; to religiously educate our
children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in
the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our
deportment; to avoid tattling, backbiting, and excessive anger; to abstain from the sale and
use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage, and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the
kingdom of our Saviour.

WE FURTHER ENGAGE to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each
other in prayer, to aid each other in sickness and distress, to cultivate 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 Saviour, to secure it without delay.

WE MOREOVER ENGAGE that, when we remove from this place, we will as soon as
possible unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant
and the principles of God’s word.
