The Ten Commandments

As believers in Jesus Christ, we are called to a new life and are asked to make moral choices that keep us united with God. With the help and grace of the Holy Spirit, we can choose ways to act to keep us close to God, to help other people, and to be witnesses to Jesus.

The Ten Commandments guide us in making choices that help us to live as God wants us to live. The first three commandments tell us how to love God; the other seven tell us how to love our neighbor.

  1. I am the Lord your God: you shall not have strange gods before me.
  2. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
  3. Remember to keep holy the Lord's Day. 
  4. Honor your father and your mother. 
  5. You shall not kill. 
  6. You shall not commit adultery. 
  7. You shall not steal.
  8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. 
  9. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife.
  10. You shall not covet your neighbor's goods.
