The purpose of the mayflower compact was because the pilgrims did NOT want a king or queen and they just wanted a government so they made rules.

The Pilgrims went to America so they could practice religion their own way. They knew they needed rules so they created the compact before they set foot on American soil.

The purpose of the mayflower compact was to form a stable government that wouldn't run out of resources quickly.
