Total commitment to regular support of a fundamental, Bible-believing church.

5

Total commitment and faithfulness to my God-given wife.
Realizing that my first obligation, as a man, is to my wife and to minister to her, I understand that I cannot faithfully minister in any other area until, first, I am properly loving my wife the way Christ loved the church. Therefore, I will develop a servant’s heart in my home towards my wife, determining to show her the love of Christ no matter what her response is to me. Ephesians 5:25

6

Total commitment to regular support of a fundamental, Bible-believing church.

Realizing the reprobate society in which we live, I am determined by the help of God to remain pure from sexual sin, flee from youthful lusts, and think only on those things which are honoring to the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Timothy 2:22; Philippians 4:8

8

Total commitment to separation from the world.
Realizing that God has commanded us to be separated and that He has told us not to be conformed to this world, I have determined to separate myself from worldly amusements, from intimate fellowship with those things or persons in the world that would pull me away from these commitments to Christ, and from other Christians who would determine not to walk in accordance with the Word of God. 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; Romans 12:2

Realizing that God has called me to be his ambassador, I will do all I can to get other men involved in my local church and the Master’s Men program. thereby fulfilling, partially, the Great Commission. 2 Corinthians 5:20
