“It is not indispensable to organize materially Christ’s Church. It is not absolutely necessary to ordain pastors and to dedicate churches; but if this be done, let it be in concession to the period, and not as a perpetual or indispensable ceremonial of the church…the real Christian compact is love for one another. This bond is wholly spiritual and inviolate”

(Miscellaneous 91)
