By virtue of our baptisms, our actions and words are not our own
— for we belong to each other —
Our polity professes that as we are bound by the Holy Spirit to Christ
through our baptisms and that baptism also
— “unites the people of God with each other.” —

We live to make witness to that unity in the body of Christ Jesus
and to work to the end that the whole church become a community of faith,
hope, love and witness.

-quoted from (Book of Order G-3.05) and
Former Moderator Bruce Reyes-Chow
