As members of the Christian Church,
We confess that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and proclaim him Lord and Savior of the world. In Christ’s name and by his grace we accept our mission of witness and service to all people. We rejoice in God, maker of heaven and earth, and in God’s covenant of love which binds us to God and to one another. Through baptism into Christ we enter into newness of life and are made one with the whole people of God. In the communion of the Holy Spirit we are joined together in discipleship and in obedience to Christ. Empowered by the Holy Spirit we receive the gift of ministry and service to others. Our lives are guided by the light of scripture. At the Table of the Lord we celebrate with thanksgiving the saving acts and presence of Christ. In the bonds of Christian faith we yield ourselves to God that we may serve the One whose kingdom has no end. We anxiously await the return of Christ, when the kingdoms of this world become the kingdom of our Lord and His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!
Blessing, glory, and honor be to God forever. Amen.
