Dear Pendel Family, We are delighted to welcome you to the Pendel Division’s Family Camp 2012! Our guests are Spirit-filled dynamic servants of God who will lead us in studying God’s Word as we worship Him together. Most of us don’t think much about covenants. We sing “Standing on the promises of God” and we all love to see a rainbow which was a visible sign of God’s promise. The world tells us promises are made to be broken. But God wants to have a relationship with you based on His covenant love and grace, not on any promises the world offers. His promise is an everlasting covenant for everyone and He offers you eternal life! Our prayer for you this weekend is that the Holy Spirit will minister to your soul, that you will experience the joy of Christ living in you and that you will receive His promises for your life. In His Name,

Don and Renée Lance, Lt. Colonels

Doctrines of The Salvation Army 1.

We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by inspiration of God, and that they only constitute the Divine rule of Christian faith and practice.


We believe that there is only one God, who is infinitely perfect, the Creator, Preserver, and Governor of all things, and who is the only proper object of religious worship.


We believe that there are three persons in the Godhead – the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, undivided in essence and co-equal in power and glory.


We believe that in the person of Jesus Christ the Divine and human natures are united, so that He is truly and properly God and truly and properly man.


We believe that our first parents were created in a state of innocency, but by their disobedience they lost their purity and happiness, and that in consequence of their fall all men have become sinners, totally depraved, and as such are justly exposed to the wrath of God.


We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has by His suffering and death made an atonement for the whole world so that whosoever will may be saved.


We believe that repentance towards God, faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit, are necessary to salvation.


We believe that we are justified by grace through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and that he that believeth hath the witness in himself.


We believe that continuance in the state of salvation depends upon continued obedient faith in Christ.


We believe that it is the privilege of all believers to be wholly sanctified, and that their whole spirit and soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.


We believe in the immortality of the soul, the resurrection of the body, in the general judgement at the end of the world, in the eternal happiness of the righteous, and in the endless punishment of the wicked.

My Covenant:

Called by God to proclaim the Gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ

As an Officer of The Salvation Army I bind myself to Him in this solemn covenant: to love and serve Him supremely all my days; to live to win souls and make their salvation the first purpose of my life. to maintain the doctrines and principles of The Salvation Army, and, by God’s grace, to prove myself a worthy Officer.

Done in the strength of my dear Saviour, and in the presence of the Territorial Commander, the Officers on the Staff of the School for Officer Training and Comrade Cadets. This Covenant Day_______________________________ Signed_______________________________________ Cadet

____________________________________________ Training Principal

____________________________________________ Territorial Commander

Articles of Marriage We do solemnly declare that, although we enter into this marriage for reasons of personal happiness and fulfillment, we will do our utmost to ensure that our married status and relationship will deepen our commitment to God and enhance the effectiveness of our service as soldiers of Jesus Christ in The Salvation Army. We promise to make our home a place where all shall be aware of the abiding presence of God, and where those under our influence shall be taught the truths of the gospel, encouraged to seek Christ as Saviour, and supported in the commitment of their lives to the service of God. We declare our intention to be to each other, by the help of God, true Christian examples and, throughtimes of joy, difficulty or loss, to encourage each other to ‘grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ’.

Promise Will you take ____________ to be your wife/ husband, to live according to God’s ordinance in holy matrimony? Will you love her/him, comfort, honour and sustain her/him, and, forsaking all others, be faithful to her/him as long as you both shall live?

Declaration I call upon these persons here present To witness that I ____________ Do take thee _______________ To be my lawful wedded wife/husband, To have and to hold From this day forward, For better for worse, For richer for poorer, In sickness and in health, To love and to cherish, Till death us do part, According to God’s holy ordinance; And this I declare upon my honour As a true soldier of Jesus Christ.

A Covenant Prayer I am no longer my own, but thine. Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt; Put me to doing, put me to suffering; Let me be employed for thee or laid aside for thee, Exalted for thee or brought low for thee; Let me be full, let me be empty; Let me have all things, let me have nothing; I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal. And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, son and Holy Spirit, thou art mine, and I am thine. So be it. And the covenant which I have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.
