Excerpt from Constitution of the Young Men's Christian Association of Columbia: With an Introduction, Embracing the Principal Points of an Address

A few remarks upon the design, peculiarities and advan tages of the young men's christian association, may not be inappropriate as an Introduction to the following Constitution.

I. The design is, in general, to promote the Spiritual improvement of its members, and Of all who can be brought within the reach of its influence. It is strictly a Christian Association: a body Of men recognizing the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the only instrument of an efiective discipline in this life, as well as the only means of safety and happiness in that which is to come. The Cross of Christ is the ultimate foun dation of all culture and improvement. It was that Cross which introduced hope into our world; and'the great prin ciple which that Cross embodies and illustrates - the principle of life from death - has been impressed upon every depart ment of human effort as the condition of success. The grace which the Cross imparts is the only security for character, and no scheme for the amelioration of manners, or the elevation of society, can be permanently effective without the recogni tion Of the Gospel. AS the life of our fallen world sprang from the tomb of Jesus, so our first step towards true excel lence is to die with him, and then rise with him by the power Of the same Spirit. While the general design of the asso ciation is spiritual, it seeks to subordinate to its prime end many minor ones, which in themselves are natural and secular.
