The Scripture Readings – Hebrews 10:19-25 ; Colossians 3:15-17
The atoning sin-sacrifice of Jesus has opened many wonderful doors for us – To the holy presence, heart and love of our merciful God by faith, to all the blessings of life as His dear children, and to a life of praise and service to Him. An important part of this praise is His invitation to come together in His house to receive “the Word of Christ” & to respond in gratitude with as we worship Him in word and song. Christian worship and fellowship is precious both to us and to those we “encourage” in the Word, as well.

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; He descended into hell; The third day he rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; The holy Christian church, the communion of saints; The forgiveness of sins; The resurrection of the body; And the life everlasting. Amen.
