As baptized members of the body of Christ, we gratefully confess Jesus as our Lord and Savior. We boldly proclaim the gospel as the Word of God. We clearly recognize the gifts that God has first given us through grace, and we joyfully accept our role and responsibility as stewards. The principles provided in this flyer are a foundation for the life of a faithful and generous steward.

Members of any Christian denomination would be able to use it, with only slight modification (if desired) to incorporate materials from their own faith tradition.
