I pledge my allegiance to Christ alone, and to the fulfillment of His purposes.

I count no nation, principality, nor kingdom as high, as consequential, as the Kingdom of God.

No pledge, no flag, no anthem, no man-made device can quicken my heart, as can the Spirit, Who, by His Word, created this magnificent land in which I am blessed to live – and for which, I am extraordinarily grateful.

No one may rightly place commands upon my allegiance, save Christ.

No one may rightly question the integrity of that which God has placed within my heart, save the Spirit Who has called me and equipped me for service.

In that allegiance, I shall show respect…

For all of God’s creation – in its care and tending.

For all of God’s people – whatever their nationality or spirituality.

For all of God’s intent – that in, and through Him, none who call upon His name should perish.

For peace, as far as it is in my ability to preserve and sustain, which does not include the passive acceptance of the evils of racism, nationalism, sexism, or any attribute not accurately representing the Spirit of Christ.

I will continue to pledge my allegiance to the One who calls us…

The One who is Faithful and True.
