The Holy Bible is the at the center of any Christian’s devotion to Jesus Christ. This simple Bible pledge reflects the importance of God’s Word and it’s role in the life of a believer. This is a popular pledge in church VBS programs. It’s often recited alongside the the Christian and the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag as children gather in their opening session.

These words are attributed to Homer Grice, a Southern Baptist minister who promoted Vacation Bible School through the Baptist Sunday School Board. It dates back to 1924, when he combined the scripture quotes from Psalm 119 into this simple prayer. (Source & Source).

I pledge allegiance to the Bible, God’s Holy Word, I will make it a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path and will hide its words in my heart that I might not sin against God.

  1. Thank you for these pledges! I’m printing them and putting them in frames on the wall in my Sunday school room! There has never been a greater need than now to teach our children where their allegiance should always be pledged!

  2. Thank you so much for the pledges. I have needed these for weeks. I have printed them out and put them on my wall in the Sunday School Class and we use them every Sunday. They are attractive and accurate. Thanks again, Bettina!
