We believe in you, O God, Eternal Spirit God of our Savior. Jesus Christ and our God, and to your deeds we testify.
You call the world into being, create persons in your own image and set before each one the ways of life and death.
You seek in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin. You judge people and nations by your righteous
will declared through prophets and apostles in Jesus Christ, the man of Nazareth, our crucified and risen Savior, you
have come to us and shared the common lot conquering sin and death and reconciling the world to yourself.
You bestow upon us your Holy Spirit, creating and renewing the church of Jesus Christ, binding in faithful people
of all ages, tongues, and races. You call us into your church to accept the cost and joy discipleship, to be your
servants in the service of others, to proclaim the gospel to all the world and resist the powers of evil, to share in
Christ’s baptism and eat at His table, to join Him in His passion and victory.
You promise to all who trust you forgiveness of sins and fullness of grace, courage in the struggle for justice and peace.
Your presence in trial and rejoicing, and eternal life in your realm which has no end.
Blessing and honor, glory and power be unto you. Amen.
