Sample Wording: Wills

A Christian Preamble to your Will provides a unique opportunity to share your faith with your family and friends. Through the Holy Spirit, this personal statement of your faith will comfort your loved ones in their time of loss and encourage them, too, to place their trust in Jesus Christ.

If you would like to include such a statement of witness in your will, one of these sample Christian Preambles to your Will could be added or used as a guide in writing your own.
