Chap. XXVI. - Of the Communion of Saints
Section 1

1. All saints, that are united to Jesus Christ their Head, by His Spirit, and by faith, have fellowship with Him in His grace, sufferings, death, resurrection, and glory: (1 John 1:3, Eph. 3:16–19, John 1:16, Eph. 2:5–6, Phil. 3:10, Rom. 6:5–6, 2 Tim. 2:12) and, being united to one another in love, they have communion in each other’s gifts and graces, (Eph. 4:15–16, 1 Cor. 12:7, 1 Cor. 3:21–23, Col. 2:19) and are obliged to the performance of such duties, public and private, as do conduce to their mutual good, both in the inward and outward man. (1 Thess. 5:11,14, Rom. 1:11–12,14, 1 John 3:16–18, Gal. 6:10)
