Ohio Christian Alliance

400 Years Ago This Week The Mayflower Compact Was Signed
The Pilgrims came to the New World, guided by the hand of God. They came for religious liberty. Though small in number, 102 souls, they were mighty in faith and simple conviction, determined to carve out a new life in a new land. They made peace with the inhabitants of the land and demonstrated their Christian faith in practical ways, which was a witness to those who observed them in their lives and practice of worship.

In the name of God, Amen. We whose names are under-written, the loyal subjects of our dread sovereign Lord, King James, by the grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland King, Defender of the Faith, etc.

Having undertaken, for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith, and honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia, do by these presents solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God, and one of another, covenant and combine our selves together into a civil body politic, for our better ordering and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the Colony, unto which we promise all due submission and obedience. In witness whereof we have hereunder subscribed our names at Cape Cod, the eleventh of November [New Style, November 21], in the year of the reign of our sovereign lord, King James, of England, France, and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth. Anno Dom. 1620.  

Numerous events were scheduled for this 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims' Landing. Due to COVID-19, many events were postponed until 2021. The Ohio Christian Alliance will be working with the Plymouth Rock Foundation, as we will take several tour groups to Plymouth. We will provide details in January. Make plans to join us in Plymouth in 2021. Visit the Plymouth Rock Foundation for additional information.
