Holy Spirit. Amen.
Recognizing that the Church of Jesus Christ and its
unity is found in "the assembly of believers among
whom the Gospel is preached in its purity and the Holy
Sacraments are administered according to the Gospel,"
and desiring to unite as a congregation in the common
confession, defense and proclamation of our faith in
Jesus Christ our Saviour, we the members of the
Church of Christ adopt this constitution and bylaws
and pledge ourselves to be governed by their
