I believe . . . in God, the Almighty Ruler of Nations, our great and good and merciful Maker, our Father in Heaven, who notes the fall of a sparrow and numbers the hairs on our heads.
I believe . . . in His eternal truth and justice. I recognize the sublime truth announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history that those nations are only blest whose God is the Lord.
I believe . . . that the Bible is the best gift which God has ever given to men. All the good from the Savior of the world is communicated to us through this book.
I believe . . . the will of God prevails. Without Him all human reliance is vain. Without the assistance of that Divine Being, I cannot succeed. With that assistance I cannot fail. Being a humble instrument in the hands of our Heavenly Father, I desire that all my works and acts may be according to His will; and that it may be so, I give my thanks to the Almighty, and seek His aid.
I believe . . . that it is right to recognize and confess the presence of the Almighty Father equally in our triumphs and in those sorrows which we may justly fear are a punishment inflicted upon us for our presumptuous sins to the needful end of our reformation. I have a solemn oath registered in heaven to finish the work I am in, in full view of my responsibility to my God, with malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right as God gives me to see the right.
