Minister: Your sins are forgiven through Christ.
Congregation: Thanks be to God!
Minister: Christian, what do you believe?
Congregation: I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the Holy Ghost, and born of the virgin, Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into Hades. On the third day He rose again from the dead, ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
Minister: The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
Congregation: The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Minister: One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after;
Congregation: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.
Minister: For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion:
Congregation: In the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me.
Minister: Neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
Congregation: When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
Minister: Wait on the Lord: Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart:
Congregation: Wait, I say, on the Lord.

Congregational Charge: Little child, for you Jesus Christ came to this earth, struggled and suffered; for your sake He crossed Gethsemane and went through the darkness of Calvary; for your sake He cried: ‘It is finished’; for your sake He died and for your sake He overcame death; indeed for your sake, little child, and you – still – know nothing of it. And thus the word of the apostle is confirmed: ‘We love God, for He loved us first.’
