have eternal life, as well as those who should come after, who  should believe in the gifts and callings of God by the Holy  Ghost, which beareth record of the Father, and of the Son,  which Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are one God, infinite and  eternal, without end. Amen.
6 And we know that all men must repent and believe on the  name of Jesus Christ and worship the Father in his name, and  endure in faith on his name to the end, or they cannot be sa ved in the kingdom of God. And we know that justification  through the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, is just  and true: and we know, also, that sanctification through the  grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, is just and true, to  all those who love and serve God with all their mights, minds,  and strength; but there is a possibility that man may fall from  grace and depart from the living God. Therefore let the church  take heed and pray always, lest they fall into temptations;  yea, and even let those who are sanctified, take heed also.—  And we know that these things are true and according to the  revelations of John, neither adding to, nor diminishing from  the prophecy of his book, the holy scriptures, or the revelations  of God which shall come hereafter by the gift and power of  the Holy Ghost, the voice of God, or the ministering of an gels: and the Lord God has spoken it; and honor, power, and  glory, be rendered to his holy name, both now and ever.—  Amen.
7 And again by way of commandment to the church concerning  the manner of baptism.
All those who humble themselves before God and desire to  be baptized, and come forth with broken hearts and contrite  spirits, and witness before the church that they have truly re pented of all their sins and are willing to take upon them the  name of Jesus Christ, having a determination to serve him to  the end, and truly manifest by their works that they have re ceived of the Spirit of Christ unto the remission of their sins,  shall be received by baptism into this church.
8 The duty of the elders, priests, teachers, deacons, and mem bers of the church of Christ.
An apostle is an elder, and it is his calling to baptize, and  to ordain other elders, priests, teachers, and deacons, and to  administer bread and wine—the emblems of the flesh and blood  of Christ—and to confirm those who are baptized into the  church, by the laying on of hands for the baptism of fire and  the Holy Ghost, according to the scriptures; and to teach,  expound exhort, baptize, and watch over the church; and to  confirm the church by the laying on of the hands, and the giv ing of the Holy Ghost—and to take the lead of all meetings. [p. 79]

8 The duty of the elders, priests, teachers, deacons, and members of the church of Christ.
An apostle is an elder, and it is his calling to baptize, and to ordain other elders, priests, teachers, and deacons, and to administer bread and wine—the emblems of the flesh and blood of Christ—and to confirm those who are baptized into the church, by the laying on of hands for the baptism of fire and the Holy Ghost, according to the scriptures; and to teach, expound exhort, baptize, and watch over the church; and to confirm the church by the laying on of the hands, and the giving of the Holy Ghost—and to take the lead of all meetings.
