Junior Soldier Promise

IHQ Announcement - A New International Junior Soldier Promise

Under the recommendations of the International Conference of Leaders in July 2009, the General has approved a new international junior soldier promise. Previous to this there have been slightly different promises used around the world for junior soldiership. It was felt that an international promise was needed because the junior soldier promise reflects membership, and that membership promise should be the same throughout the Army world. The following is the new junior soldier promise and it's change comes into effect immediately:

I know that Jesus is my Saviour from sin.
I have asked him to forgive my sins,
and I will trust him to keep me good.
By his help, I will be his loving and obedient child,
and will help others to follow him.
I promise to pray, to read my Bible,
and to lead a life that is clean in thought, word and deed.
I will not use anything that may injure my body or mind,
including harmful drugs, alcohol and tobacco.

As you may be aware we have printed this promise on our Junior Soldier Promise Enrollment Card, Junior Soldier Preparation Course, Junior Soldier Sergeant and Junior Action INFO PAK, Junior Soldier Day of Renewal and Junior Action Commitment Sunday Renewal Cards and Bulletins. We have now changed this text and it is available to you for your use. In the meantime, if you are using the old preparation course "Be A Part of It All" and the Pledge Cards that went with it, we would ask that you now destroy these. If you are using the current preparation course "God's Big Picture Includes... Me", please contact the and we will send you replacement pages for your guide.

Thank you for all you do to encourage junior membership in The Salvation Army!
