The Singapore Pledge & Christainity

Every student in Singapore has to recite the following pledge every day.
As Christains, perhaps we should has similar pledge to remind us too.
Below is the "Singapore Pledge"

We, the citizens of Singapore, pledge ourselves as one united people, regardless of race, language or religion, to build a democratic society based on justice and equality so as to achieve happiness, prosperity and progress for our nation.

There is a slogan too: "One people. One nation. One Singapore."

Propose The Church Version:

We, the citizens of Heaven and Children of our Father-God,
commits ourselves as one united body of Christ,
regardless of race, language or religion /1
to build a victorious/2 community
based on Christ and His love
so as to bring forth Heaven on earth,/3
giving love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control

notes:
/1 Christianity is relationship with God, not man created religion. It reaches to people of different religious background.
/2 Victorious: free from sin, sickness, poverty,... enpowered to love, good works, etc.
/3 His Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. It is of people hearts and not a political kingdom.
