THE AFFIRMATION OF FAITH

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is the one true Church, apostolic and universal, whose holy faith let us now proclaim:

We believe in God the Father, 

infinite in wisdom, power and love, whose mercy is over all His works, and whose

will is ever directed to His children’s good.

We believe in Jesus Christ, Son of God

and Son of Man, the gift of the Father’s

unfailing grace, the ground of our hope, 

and the promise of our deliverance

from sin and death.

We believe in the Holy Spirit as the

divine presence in our lives, whereby

we are kept in perpetual remembrance

of the truth of Christ, and find strength

and help in time of need.

We believe that this faith should manifest itself in the service of love as set forth

in the example of our blessed Lord, 

to the end that the Kingdom of God

may come upon the earth.  Amen!

THE LORD’S PRAYER

Our Father in heaven: holy is Your Name; Your Kingdom come; Your will be done on earth as in heaven.

MORNING SONG

O Lord, You’re beautiful;

Your face is all I see;

And when Your eyes are on this child,

Your grace abounds to me!

 

BENEDICTION

May the Lord bless you and keep you; May the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.  Amen!
