The Christian Flag is displayed in many churches across America. It plays a role in many Vacation Bible School programs when students join together in their pledge time each morning during the opening assembly. This short verbal affirmation is typically recited along with the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag and one also to the Bible.

5 thoughts on “Pledge to the Christian Flag”
The pledge that I learned as a child, and the one I prefer (maybe because it’s the one I grew up with, lol) is
“I pledge allegiance to the Christian flag
And to the Savior for which it stands
One Savior, crucified, risen, and coming again
Bringing life and liberty to all who believe.”
This is how it should always go. It has the whole salvation message in it.
I’ve never known it any other way but this:
I pledge allegiance to the Christian Flag
And to the Savior for whose Kingdom it stands
One brotherhood united in service and love
Here’s how I learned it and how we say it at our school. I don’t know the author.
“I pledge allegiance to the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the faith for which it stands: one Savior, King Eternal, with mercy and grace for all. So help me God.”
I learned the Christian Flag pledge….the same except after “whose kingdom it stand”….One Savior, crucified, risen, and coming again with life and liberty to all who believe.
