CONFESSION OF SIN

Almighty and most merciful Father,

we have erred and strayed from Your ways like lost sheep,

we have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts,

we have offended against Your holy laws,

we have left undone those things which we ought to have done,

and we have done those things which we ought not to have done.

But You, O Lord, have mercy upon us,

spare those who confess their faults,

restore those who are repentant,

according to Your promise declared to humankind in Christ Jesus our Lord;

and grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake,

that we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life,

to the glory of Your holy Name. Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON

Song –

Christ is Risen” by Matt Maher

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – The Apostle’s Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth.

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell and on the third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
