Pastor: We will not misuse God’s Name.

Congregation: We will use God’s name to call upon God in prayer, praise and thanksgiving.

Pastor: We will keep the Sabbath Holy

Congregation: We will not take the preaching of God's Word lightly, but consider it holy, listen to it willingly, and learn it.

Pastor: We will honor our parents.

Congregation: We will not look down on our parents or superiors nor irritate them, but rather we will honor, serve, obey, love and value them.

Congregation: We will neither harm nor hurt others, but rather, help them and care for them when they are ill.

Pastor: We will not commit adultery.

Congregation: In matters of sex our actions and words will be clean and respectful toward others and we will do all we can to encourage long term loving relationships.

Pastor: We will not steal.

Congregation: We will neither take another’s money or property, nor acquire them by fraud or by selling them poorly made products, but we will help others improve and protect their property and careers.

Pastor: We will not tell lies about others.

Congregation: We will not deceive by lying, betraying, slandering or ruining our neighbor's reputation, but will defend others, say good things about them, and see the best side of everything they do.

Pastor: We will not desire anything that is someone else’s.

Congregation: We will not use trickery or stealth to try to get anything that belongs to someone else, rather we will work for the betterment of the community and help our neighbors keep and improve all they have.

All: This is most certainly true.
