The Declaration of Dependence

When in the course of human and heavenly events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the spiritual bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of earth and heaven, the separate and more powerful station to which the King and His Kingdom entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind require that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold the Word of God as The Truth. The Truth was given to all men that they might have life, liberty and the freedom to pursue their God. That to secure these truths, a government exist among men and angels, deriving its just power from its Creator and King, that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it and to declare and decree a new government, laying the foundation on the Word of God.

We declare and decree that the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ; And he shall reign for ever and ever.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Might God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
