The breadth and depth of [William] Carey's missionary service [in India] is well illustrated in the principles laid down for themselves by the Serampore Brotherhood to be read three times a year in each station in their charge. Here is a summary: 1. To set an infinite value on men's souls. 2. To abstain from whatever deepens India's prejudice against the Gospel. 3. To watch for every chance of doing the people good. 4. To preach Christ crucified as the grand means of conversions. 5. To esteem and treat Indians always as equals. 6. To be instant in the nurture of personal religion. 7. To cultivate the spiritual gifts of the Indian brethren, ever pressing upon them their missionary obligation, since only Indians can win India for Christ.
