Fundamental Orders (Constitution) of Connecticut January 14, 1639, was the first constitution written in America, instituting a provisional government and later serving as the model for the United States Constitution. The committee framing the orders was charged to make the laws: “As near the law of God as thy can be.”
The first example of a written constitution,, constituting a government and defining it’s powers, was composed as a distinct organic act. The articles which made up this constitution included:
Article I That the Scriptures hold forth a perfect rule for the direction and government of all men in all duties which they are to perform to God and men, as well in families and common wealths as in matters of the church.
Article II That as in matters which concern the gathering and ordering of a church, so likewise in all public offices which concern civil order,, – as the choice of magistrates and officers,, making and repealing laws, dividing allotments of inheritance, and all things of like nature, – they would all be governed by those rules which the Scripture held forth to them.
Article III That all those who had desired to bed received free planters had settled in the plantation with a purpose, resolution, and desire that they might be admitted into church fellowship according to Christ.
