The old New English Bible (NEB) uses the word "allegiance" for the term other translations have as "believe in the name of." Here it is in 1 John 3:23: "This is his command: to give our allegiance to his Son Jesus Christ and love one another as he commanded."

As I understand allegiance is associated with the feudal oath, obligation and pledge of commitment given by a vassal to his liege lord. In return the liege lord guarantees the safety and welfare of his vassals.
