Having been brought, as we trust, by divine grace, to embrace the Lord Jesus Christ, and to give ourselves wholly to Him, we do now solemnly and joyfully covenant with each other to walk together with Him in brotherly love. We do, therefore, in His strength, agree:
That we will exercise a loving care and watchfulness over each other, praying for, exhorting, encouraging and admonishing each other as occasion may require, and as members one of another, seek to promote the growth of the whole body in Christian knowledge, holiness and comfort, that we may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God:
That we will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, but will uphold the public worship of God and the ordinances of His house, and cheerfully contribute of our property, as God prospers us, for the maintenance of a faithful ministry of the Gospel among us, the support of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel into the entire world:
That in our homes we will not omit private and family worship, nor neglect to train up our children and those under our care for the service of Christ and the enjoyment of heaven:
That, as in baptism we have been buried with Christ and raised again to walk in newness of life, and as we are declared to be the light of the world and the salt of the earth, we will seek divine aid that we may deny ungodliness and every worldly lust, and walk circumspectly in the world, that we may win souls, and in all conditions, even until death, endeavor to live to the glory of Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.
And may the God of peace, who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus Christ, that great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make us perfect in every good work to do His will; working in us that which is well-pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
