Confession & Forgiveness
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
If We say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.
But if we confess our sins, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
LET US TAKE A MOMENT OF SELF-EXAMINATION AND REFLECT ON GOD'S PROMISE
Let Us confess our sins to God our Father:
Most Holy and merciful God, we confess that we are by nature sinful & unclean. We have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed; by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved You with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We justly deserve Your present & eternal punishment. For the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, have mercy on us. Forgive us, Renew us & Lead us, so that we may delight in Your will & walk in Your ways to the glory of Your holy name. Amen.
In the mercy of Almighty God, Jesus Christ was given to die for us, and for His sake God forgives us all our sins. Those who believe in Jesus Christ He gives the power to become the children of God and bestows on them the Holy Spirit. May the Lord, who has begun this good work in us, bring it to completion in the day our Lord Jesus Christ.
I believe in one God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth,
And of all things visible and invisible:
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God,
Begotten of his Father before all worlds,
God of God, Light of Light,
Very God of very God,
Begotten, not made,
Being of one substance with the Father,
By whom all things were made;
Who for us men, and for our salvation came down from heaven,
And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary,
And was made man,
And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate.
He suffered and was buried,
And the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures,
And ascended into heaven,
And sitteth on the right hand of the Father.
And he shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead:
Whose kingdom shall have no end.
And I believe in the Holy Ghost,
The Lord and giver of life,
Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son,
Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified,
Who spake by the Prophets.
And I believe one Chrisian and Apostolic Church.
I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins.
And I look for the Resurrection of the dead,
And the life of the world to come.
