Song: “O Fount of Love”
L: This is the good news that we have received, in which we stand, and by which we are saved: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that He was buried, and that He was raised to life on the third day,
C: We believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. He is our Lord and our God.
L: We rejoice that the Spirit of God is transforming our hearts and lives through the Gospel of Jesus, as He is waking and empowering us to see our place and mission in this world.
C: Go forth in us, Spirit of God, that we may be the unified church as we worship the glory of God, live out the Gospel in loving community, display the love of Jesus as active servants, learn more of God’s glory and our mission through studying God’s Word, and as we proclaim the saving grace of Jesus as we live as missionaries to all around us.
L: In a world distant from God, where millions of people face confusing choices,
C: this mission to proclaim Jesus is central to our being, for we announce the one name that saves!
