1.   I recognize that there is only one true and living God who exists as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is worthy of all honour, praise, and glory as the One who made all things and holds all things together. (Exod 20:2-3; Col 1:16-17)

2.   I recognize that Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us. I believe that He came to destroy the works of the devil, and that He disarmed the rulers and authorities and made a public display of them, having triumphed over them. (John 1:1;14; Col 2:15; 1 John 3:8)

3.   I believe that God demonstrated His own love for me in that while I was still a sinner, Christ died for me. I believe that He has delivered me from the domain of darkness and transferred me to His kingdom, and in Him I have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (Rom 5:8; Col 1:13-14)

4.   I believe that I am now a child of God and that I am seated with Christ in the heavenlies. I believe that I was saved by the grace of God through faith, and that it was a gift and not a result of any works on my part. (Eph 2:6;8-9; 1 John 3:1-3)

5.   I choose to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. I put no confidence in the flesh, for the weapons of my warfare are not of the flesh but are divinely powerful for the destruction of strongholds. I put on the full armour of God. I resolve to stand firm in my faith and resist the evil one. (2 Cor 10:4; Eph 6:10-20; Phil 3:3)

6.   I believe that apart from Christ I can do nothing, so I declare my complete dependence on Him. I choose to abide in Christ in order to bear much fruit and glorify my Father. I announce to satan that Jesus is my Lord. I reject any and all counterfeit gifts or works of satan in my life. (John 15:5;8; 1 Cor 12:3)

7.   I believe that the truth will set me free and that Jesus is the truth. If He sets me free, I will be free indeed. I recognize that walking in the light is the only path of true fellowship with God and man. Therefore, I stand against all of satan’s deception by taking every thought captive in obedience to Christ. I declare that the Bible is the only authoritative standard for truth and life. (John 8:32,36; 14:6; 2 Cor 10:5; 2 Tim 3:15-17; 1 John 1:3-7)

8.   I choose to present my body to God as a living and holy sacrifice and the members of my body as instruments of righteousness. I choose to renew my mind by the living Word of God in order that I may prove that the will of God is good, acceptable, and perfect. I put off the old self with its evil practices and put on the new self. I declare myself to be a new creation in Christ. (Rom 6:13; 12:1-2; 2 Cor 5:17; Col 3:9-10)

9.   By faith, I choose to be filled with the Spirit so that I can be guided into all truth. I choose to walk by the Spirit so that I will not carry out the desires of the flesh. (John 16:13; Gal 5:16; Eph 5:18)

10. I renounce all selfish goals and choose the ultimate goal of love. I choose to obey the two greatest commandments: to love the Lord my God with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love my neighbour as myself. (Matt 22:37-39; 1 Tim 1:5)

11. I believe that the Lord Jesus has all authority in heaven and on earth, and He is the Head over all rule and authority. I am complete in Him. I believe that satan and his demons are subject to me in Christ since I am a member of Christ’s body. Therefore, I obey the command to submit to God and resist the devil, and I command satan in the name of Jesus Christ to leave my presence. (Matt 28:18; Eph 1:19-23; Col 2:10; James 4:7)
