In an effort to show their substantial doctrinal unity with their fellow sufferers who were paedobaptist, the Particular Baptists called for an assembly which met in London in 1677 to draw up another confession of faith.

However, these communities were transient in nature. The focus of the later phase was to gain official recognition of the already de facto established independence of the Dutch. The real object of the amendment was, not to countenance, much less to advance Mahometanism, or Judaism, or infidelity, by prostrating Christianity; but to exclude all rivalry among Christian sects, and to prevent any national ecclesiastical establishment, which should give to an hierarchy the exclusive patronage of the national government.

This sin, which God forced man to commit, corrupted man's nature making the entire human race totally deprived of good, wholly inclined to evil and sin.
