of worship, see Our Beliefs. Our worship

Confession of Sin
[Adapted from the Book of Common Worship]
Almighty God, You are rich in mercy to all
those who call upon You. Hear us as we come to You humbly confessing our sins and
transgressions, and imploring Your mercy and forgiveness. We have broken Your holy laws
by our deeds and by our words, and by the sinful affections of our hearts. We confess before
You our disobedience and ingratitude, our pride and willfulness; and all our failures and
shortcomings toward You and toward our fellow men.
Have mercy upon us, most merciful Father; And
by Your great goodness grant that we may hereafter serve and please You in newness of
life; through the merit and mediation of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Apostles' Creed, # 845
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy
born of the virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died,
buried; he descended into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended
into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From there
he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints,
of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
