Reformed Covenanter

Cancelled Commissioner
Q. Is it sufficient, that the Minister of the word be able to teach?

A. No; there is further required of them, that they be no new and green plants in the Church of God, but such as by a long abode in the Church, may be as timber well seasoned; and therefore fit to bear the stress and weight of the ministry in the Church of God.
