Where the world comes to study the Bible

Deuteronomy 6:7ff

I Take God …

  • I take God the Father to be my chief end and highest good.
  • I take God the Son to be my prince and Saviour.
  • I take God the Holy Spirit to be my sanctifier, teacher, guide, and comforter.
  • I take the Word of God to be my rule in all my actions and the people of God to be my people under all conditions.
  • I do hereby dedicate and devote to the Lord all I am, all I have, and all I can do.
  • And this I do deliberately, freely, and forever.
