  1. Do you believe in God: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit as the one and only true God?

  2. Do you know yourself to be a sinner in the sight of God, justly deserving eternal punishment for your sin?

  3. Do you trust only in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, for your salvation, as the One punished in your place on the cross?

  4. Do you promise, in humble dependence on the grace of God, to turn away from all sin and live a holy life?

  5. Do you promise to serve in and contribute joyfully to the worship and work of Christ's Church, and your local church in particular, to the best of your ability?

  6. Do you submit to the Biblical oversight and discipline of the elders in your local church?

  7. Do you affirm all these things, believing the whole Bible to be true and the Word of God?



The congregation is then asked:
