|This is to certify that on the 15th day of May 1853 we the presbytery
constituted a united Baptist church in Tarrant County State of
Texas denominated the Beare Creek united baptist church of Christ.
After conversation with the Brethrens and Sisters whose names is annext
We are satisfied that they are sound in the faith once delivered to the saints and believe it is for the glory of God and the advancement of The kingdom of our heavenly Master that they wish the church organized.
We have read their letters and the articles of Faith and Rule of Decorum upon which they united and find them in accordance with the Gospel and the members orthodox.
We therefore pronounce them a church with all the Rules Ordinances and Priviledges of the Gospel.
