"The first consideration is to make the Colony a Christian community, ... in order that these persons become a salting salt in the Colony.... For that reason only Christians will be accepted of whom we may expect that they will gladly submit themselves to the Word of God, in order that not only a Christian church government but also a Christian civil government shall be established.  This will have as its task the execution of God's commandment, which is the basis of every state. "
