Baptismal Declaration

Baptismal declaration written by Philip Henry, father of Matthew Henry

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.
