That all the Members of CHRIST's Church are Baptized by Him with the HOLY GHOST and Fire, thereby, giving them a new Heart, and putting 4 new Spirit within them, by which they are bora again and become new Creatures.

'Tis meet (adds be). Men should have right Sentiments concerning these great Truths of CHRISTIANITY; Nevertheless, I must own, that the Life and Substance of the Religion of the Holy Y ESU S is the Internal Knowledge of the Operations of the Holy GHOST in our Souls bringing us to a faving and sensible

Knowledge of the Son of GOD, and true Obedience and Adoration to Him, whereby we come to die to our selves, our own Affections and Wills, and to live to Him that Died for us and rose again; to have our Affections set on things that are above. In a Word, to do the Will of our Heavenly FATHER.
