  1. SENTENCES: The President may say:
    God so loved the world that He gave His only Son Jesus Christ to save us from our sins, to be our Advocate in heaven, and to bring us to eternal life.
    Or One or more these Sentences
    Hear the words of comfort our Saviour Christ says to all who truly turn to Him: Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (Mt. 11:28).
    God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. (Jn 3:16).
    Hear what St. Paul says: This saying is true and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners (1 Tim. 1:15)
    Hear also what St. John says: If any one sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and He is the propitiation for our sins (1 Jn. 2:1)
    7. President: Let us confess our sins, in penitence and faith, firmly resolved to keep God’s commandments and to live in love and peace with all people; meekly kneeling upon our knees.
    (A Brief pause)
    All: Almighty God, our heavenly Father,
    We have sinned against You
    and against our neighbours,
    in thought and word and deed,
    through negligence, through weakness,
    through our own deliberate fault.
    We have not sufficiently walked according to the mind of Christ.
    We have named the name of Christ,
    but have not departed from iniquity.
    We are truly sorry, and repent of all our sins.
    For the sake of Your Son Jesus Christ,
    who died for us, forgive us all that is past,
    and grant that we may serve You in newness of life,
    to the glory of Your name. Amen.
    President: Almighty God,
    who forgives all who truly repent,
    have mercy upon you,
    pardon and deliver you from all your sins,
    confirm and strengthen you in all goodness,
    and keep you in life eternal;
    through Jesus Christ our Lord.
    All: Amen.

THE NICENE CREED

THE NICENE CREED (Congregation Stands)
All: We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one being with the Father
Through Him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation,
He came down from heaven;
by the power of the Holy Spirit
He became incarnate of the Virgin Mary
and was made man.
For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate:
He suffered death and was buried.
On the third day He rose again
in accordance with the scriptures;
He ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory,
to judge the living and the dead,
and His kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the Giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son
He is worshipped and glorified;
He has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one, Holy,
Catholic and Apostolic Church;
we acknowledge one baptism
for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen
