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 Spirit, 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 forsake the paths of sin and to walk in the ways of holiness all the days of our lives, to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this church, in knowledge holiness and comfort; to promote its spirituality and prosperity; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrine; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of its ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel throughout all nations.

We also engage to maintain family and personal devotions; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings; faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportment; to avoid all tattling, backbiting, and excessive anger; to abstain from the sale, manufacture or use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage, and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior.

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 Savior to secure it without delay. Matt 18:15-19.

We further engage, that, when we remove from this place, we shall, as soon as possible unite with some other church, where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of the Word of God.
