    Called By God

    to proclaim the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as an Officer of The Salvation Army

    To Love and serve Him supremely all my days;

    To Live to win souls and make their salvation the first purpose of my life;

    To Care for the poor, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, love the unlovable, and befriend those who have no friends;

    To Maintain the doctrines and principles of The Salvation Army and; by God’s Grace, to prove myself a worthy Officer;

    Done in the strength of my Lord and Savior, and in the presence of the Territorial Commander, the Training Staff, and fellow Cadets;
