In common with other churches of their faith, this Baptist Church has no hard and fast creed, holding as their first tenet the divine right of every man to interpret the Scriptures (which they believe to be the authoritative word of God), according to the light of his own conscience, without the dictation of pope or presbytery. From their beginning—the day of small things with them—until now, there have heen accorded them the respect and sweet courtesies of the other churches in the city, and, as they believe, the blessing of the Great Head of the Church Universal. Today, the Baptists of Medford may say—more than said the patriarch, Jacob: ‘Lo, with my staff,’—my little staff of twelve—‘I passed over this Jordan,’— the Jordan of trial and obscurity — in 1841, ‘and now I am become ‘four’ bands.’
