Confession of Faith
Westminster Shorter Catechism 5
Q: Are there more gods than one?
A: There is but one only, the living and true God.
Confession of Sin
Almighty, eternal God and Father, we confess that we were conceived and born in sin, and are therefore inclines to all evil and slow to do all good; that we break your holy commandments without ceasing, and continually corrupt ourselves. But are grieved over our sin, and plead your grace for help. Have mercy on us, most gracious God, through your Son our Lord Jesus Christ. Grant to us and increase in us your Holy Spirit, that we may recognize our sin fro the bottom of our hearts, attain true repentance and sorrow for them, die to them completely, and please you entirely by a new and godly life. Amen.
Assurance of Pardon 1 Timothy 1:15
15 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus
came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.
