I will become a dutiful son (or daughter) and a child of goodness to attend our Father forever in the ideal world of creation (by) returning joy and glory to Him. This I pledge.
2. I will take upon myself completely the Will of God to give me the whole creation as my inheritance. He has given me His Word, His personality, and His heart, and is reviving me who had died, making me one with Him and His true child. To do this, our Father has persevered for 6000 years the sacrificial way of the cross. This I pledge.
3. As a true son (or daughter), I will follow our Father's pattern and charge bravely forward into the enemy camp, until I have judged them completely with the weapons with which He has been defeating the enemy Satan for me throughout the course of history by sowing sweat for earth, tears for man, and blood for heaven, as a servant but with a father's heart, in order to restore His children and the universe, lost to Satan. This I pledge.
4. The individual, family, society, nation, world, and cosmos who are willing to attend our Father, the source of peace, happiness, freedom, and all ideals, will fulfill the ideal world of one heart in one body by restoring their original nature. To do this, I will become a true son (or daughter), returning joy and satisfaction to our Father, and as our Father's representative, I will transfer to the creation peace, happiness, freedom and all ideals in the world of the heart. This I pledge.
5. I am proud of the one Sovereignty, proud of the one people, proud of the one land, proud of the one language and culture centered upon God, proud of becoming the child of the One True Parent, proud of the family who is to inherit one tradition, proud of being a laborer who is working to establish the one world of the heart.

Family Pledge Is the Bone Thought of the Unification Church True Father's Words in July, 2002 http://www.tparents.org/Moon-Talks/SunMyungMoon02/SM0207-Pledge.htm
What is the bone thought of the Unification Church? It is the Pledge centered on the family. When you recite the Family Pledge, you have to understand and practice it without mind and body's struggling. Did you accomplish this, or not? . Why did we make the Family Pledge? To find true love and to meet and attend God in our families. (at East Garden on July 17, 2002) 

This time I explained about the bone thoughts of the Unification Church, didn't I? They are the Family Pledge, the Coronation Ceremony of God's Kingship, the Rally for the Unification and Complete Settlement of the Parents of Heaven and Earth, and the Resolution by representatives of the five great religions in the spirit world. . If you can attain one of the Family Pledges, you can enter into the Heavenly Kingdom. (at East Garden on July 29, 2002)

 Importance of the Family Pledge (From "True Family and Family Pledge" Japanese version pp.41-53) 

The Family Pledge is a record extracted from a core teaching of how to make a family centering on the Principle. Knowing it, you have to recite the Family Pledge before your prayer, and you have to check situations of yourself and your family. If it is not like the Family Pledge, you have to correct it as soon as possible. You have to realize it. In the past, we recited My Pledge, didn't we? What is it now? In a future, Nation Pledge and World Pledge should also emerge. (260-305)

 This Pledge was extracted as a main point of the Principle of Restoration, so you have to live centering on this pledge every day, wherever you go. In the Family Pledge, the most important thing is True Love. True Love. What is True Love? If you offer your mind and body as offerings in front of God, He will give it back to us more. If not, there is nothing to be given back. When we offer ourselves with absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience, God will stand in front of us and the Heavenly Kingdom on earth and in heaven will come true after our action. (285-297)
When we pledge in the providence, we pledge as a family, not as an individual now. A family is a root of everything, so we pledge as a representative of a family. Father represents their family, and mother also represents their family. Sons and daughters also represent their family. First, mind and body have to unite into one, and next, husband and wife become one. Third, children become one. Why? Human beings lost God in the Garden of Eden. Then, we lost the individual, the family and children. We have to restore this. So, when we recite Family Pledge, our mind and body have to become one, and husband and wife have to become one. Then, children have to become one. (267-146)

The Unification Church became Family Federation for World Peace and Unification after the 40-year wilderness course. It is necessary to decide on absolute rules or a constitution. That constitution is the Family Pledge. The word "Family Pledge" emerged for the first time in the history. Family Pledge means to seek and complete the Heavenly Kingdom. When we read the Family Pledge carefully, it liberates a family completely after restoration by indemnity. So, those who recite Family Pledge are not people who belong to the fallen world, but people who entered the realm of the completed family. By making a family with true love, mind and body, which were divided by false love, unite into one. Without the unity of mind and body, we cannot recite the Family Pledge. (264-244)

In the Unification Church, we proclaimed Family Pledge. Fallen people cannot recite the Family Pledge. Eight verses of the Family Pledge include the phrase "by centering on true love." What does this mean? This means that the Family Pledge is recited on the foundation that there is no connection with Satan's world. Why does the Family Pledge include true love? It is because we are now in the original world without any trace of the fall which occurred in the Garden of Eden. (263-194)

There is no concept of enemy in the Family Pledge. It pursues completely an individual's spiritual attitude. The Family Pledge is this kind of thing. There is no concept of enemy. There is only the concept of love. It is like a pillar of the Heavenly Kingdom on earth, and is the basic formula to create the Heavenly Kingdom on earth. (295-245)
