Children or young people aged 7-13 who are willing to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour can become Junior Soldiers of The Salvation Army, a group of young followers of the Lord Jesus. When secular values such as academic achievement and material idols are constantly affecting the physical, mental, spiritual and social health of children and young people, Junior Soldiers rely on the help of Christ to stay away from sins and live holy through bible stories, social life, faith in practice and serving others. They can be gospel ambassadors in their families, schools and communities and help more people to know Jesus. Hence, every Junior Soldier must make the following confession and promise.
I know that Jesus is my Saviour from sin.
I have asked him to forgive my sins, and I will trust him to keep me good.
By his help, I will be his loving and obedient child, and will help others to follow him.
I promise to pray, to read my Bible, and to lead a life that is clean in thought, word and deed.
I will not use anything that may injure my body or my mind, including harmful drugs, alcohol and tobacco.
