Pathfinder Pledge & Law:
The Pathfinder Pledge & Law is an important part of Pathfinders. Thousands of Pathfinders each year learn and choose to abide by the requirements of the Pathfinder Pledge and Law for the sole purpose of growing closer to their fellow men and women, and to their Creator.
Pathfinder Aim & Motto:
Aim: The Advent Message to All the World in My Generation
Motto: The Love of Christ Compels Me
Oh, we are the Pathfinders strong,
The servants of God are we.
Faithful as we march along,
In kindness, truth, and purity
A Message to tell to the world,
A truth that will set us free!
King Jesus the Savior's coming back
For you, and me!
Pathfinders are Christians and as such, wish to declare their support of the symbols and substance of their faith. Often, at Pathfinder Sabbaths, Inductions, and Investitures, a portion of the program is dedicated to declaring their allegience to God through the reciting aloud of the Pledge to the Christian Flag and to the Bible.
Pledge to the Christian Flag:
I pledge Allegiance to the Christian Flag and to the Savior for whose kingdom it stands, one brotherhood uniting all mankind in service and love.
Pledge to the Bible:
I pledge to the Bible God's Holy word, and will take it as a lamp unto my feet, a light unto my path, and hide its words in my heart that I may not sin against God.
By the grace of God, I will be pure, and kind, and true. I will keep the Pathfinder Law. I will be a servant of God and a friend to man.
The Law is for me to:
Keep the morning watch
Do my honest part
Care for my body,
Keep a level eye
Be courteous and obedient
Walk softly in the sanctuary,
Keep a song in my heart,
Go on God's errand.
