A totally unChristian, even anti-Christian doctrine, one that is unique to Homestead Heritage. Recently added, as there was nothing even remotely of this nature in the 1970s into the 1980s.
Added Feb, 2019:How could any real Christian talk about pledging the old nature? And this is not an offhand slip, it is in a carefully written statement of faith. The moorings of Homestead Heritage were totally shaken by their Bible confusions and yahwehism.
They do not mention that Yahshua, a terrible mangling connected to the devil entity Yahweh, has been added into the water baptism, either along with Jesus or in place of Jesus.
Note also how there is no mention of remission of sins.
