Chap. xxvi. Of the Communion of Saints S


ALL saints that are united to Jesus Christ their head by his spirit and by faith have fellowship with him in his graces sufferings death resurrection and glory and being united to one another in love they have communion in each others gifts and graces and are oblidged to the performance of such duties publick and private as do conduce to their mutuall good both in the inward and outward man


Saints by profession are bound to maintain an holy fellowship and communion in the worship of God and in performing such other spirituall services as tend to their mutuall edification as also in relieving each other in outward things according to their severall abilities and necessities which communion as God offereth opportunity is to be extended to all those who in every place call upon the name of the Lord Jesus


THIS Communion which the saints have with Christ doth not make them in any wise partakers of the substance of his Godhead or to be equall with Christ in any respect either of which to affirm is impious and blasphemous Nor doth their communion one with another as saints take away or infringe the title or propriety which each man hath in his goods and possessions
