AFFIRMATION OF FAITH
I believe that God created me and all that exists, and that after mankind fell into sin, He loved us so much that He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to suffer, die, and rise again for me and for all other sinners.
I acknowledge that I am sinful, and that I am totally unable to save myself from my justly deserved eternal punishment by anything which I can do on my own.
I believe that God has created faith in my heart, through Word and Sacrament, to trust that He has redeemed me through Jesus Christ; that He enables me to daily repent, turn away from selfishness and sin, and serve Him through those He has placed into my life, whether in my home, job, community or congregation. All this I know from God’s revealed Holy Word, the Bible.
In this congregation, it is my sincere purpose to be faithful in attendance at worship and communion, and to gladly support God’s work with my time, talent and treasure, to the degree that I am able. I recognize the value of daily personal Bible study and prayer, and I wish to grow in their use.
In undivided loyalty to Christ, I will strive through faithful worship and diligent Bible study, to discover and follow God’s will for my life, to be temperate in all things, and watchful of what I say and of how I live, that God may be glorified through me.
