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: Your throne, O God, is forever and ever.
Congregation: The scepter of Your kingdom is a right scepter.
Minister: You love righteousness, and hate wickedness,
Congregation: Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
Minister: With the oil of gladness above Your fellows.
Congregation: All Your garments smell of myrrh, and alloes, and cassia,
Minister: Out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made You glad.
Congregation: I will make Your name to be remembered in all generations,
Minister: Therefore shall the people praise You forever and ever.

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.’
