From Our Exchanges

[The Pacific Baptist]

A true church seeks not power for itself. It is not an end in itself; it is only a means to an end. It exists not to be glorified, but to glorify; not to be served, but to serve. Pomp and circumstance are unbecoming to it. Simplicity and sobriety best express its true character. It has no magic of ordinances by which it can transform lives, no power of its own to condemn or forgive. It is a democracy of believers who have chosen to band themselves together to live a life, enjoy a fellowship, and proclaim to all men a message of salvation personal and social. World conquest through the moral and spiritual transformation of all men is its program. Surely here is an aim so all-inclusive, so magnificent, and so beneficent, that it ought to appeal to the most ambitious and the most efficient minds of the best age of the world.
