PRELUDE – “Christ Our Hope In Life and Death”

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Exodus 15:11-13

Hear this call to worship from Exodus 15:11-13

Who among the gods
    is like you, Lord?
Who is like you—
    majestic in holiness,
awesome in glory,
    working wonders?

 “You stretch out your right hand,
    and the earth swallows your enemies.
In your unfailing love you will lead
    the people you have redeemed.
In your strength you will guide them
    to your holy dwelling.


Holy Is the Lord” by Chris Tomlin and Louie Giglio

CONFESSION OF SIN – From Martin Bucer’s 1539 Liturgy

“Let’s confess our sins together using Martin Bucer’s prayer from his 1539 Liturgy. Read with me aloud.”

Almighty, eternal God and Father, we confess and acknowledge unto You that we were conceived in unrighteousness and are full of sin and transgression in all our life. We do not fully believe Your Word nor follow Your holy commandments. Remember Your goodness, we beseech You, and for Your Name’s sake be gracious unto us, and forgive us our iniquity which, alas, is great Amen.

[Moment of Silence]


“Listen to how the Psalmist talks to himself in Psalm 103:1-5”

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and all that is within me,
    bless his holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity,
    who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit,
    who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
who satisfies you with good
    so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Hear This Assurance of Pardon:

“Through Christ’s life, death, and resurrection, the Lord forgives our sins and cleanses our unrighteousness.”

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH: 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith Chapter 1 Paragraph 1

“Let’s affirm together what we Christians believe to be true about the Lord our God. Read with me from the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith Chapter 1 Paragraph 1.”

The Lord our God is but one only living and true God;

 whose subsistence is in and of Himself, infinite in being and perfection; 

whose essence cannot be comprehended by any but Himself; a most pure spirit,invisible, without body, parts, or passions, who only hath immortality, 

dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; 

who is immutable, immense, eternal, incomprehensible, almighty, every way infinite, most holy, most wise, most free, most absolute; 

working all things according to the counsel of His own immutable 

and most righteous will, for His own glory; 

most loving, gracious, merciful, long-suffering, 

abundant in goodness and truth, forgiving iniquity, transgression, and sin; 

the rewarder of them that diligently seek Him, 

and withal most just and terrible in His judgments, hating all sin, 

and who will by no means clear the guilty.

PRAYER Be seated
