Our spiritual life is grounded in relationship & as such has to do with God’s way of relating to us, & our way of relating to God & others. All Christian relationships are grounded in the central affirmations of Faith as stated in God’s Word & the Holy Bible.
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven & earth. I believe 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, died, & was buried; On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, & he will 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, & the life everlasting. Amen.
*The word "catholic" in the Apostles' Creed refers not to the Roman Catholic Church, but to the universal church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.
