Confession of Sin
O Holy God, You who dwells in unapproachable light, we know the truth of Your words: “there is none righteous, not even one.” We know that those who are in the flesh cannot please You, because without faith it is impossible to do so. We come to You with faith in Christ Jesus, who alone always does what pleases You. We believe in Him, and rest in His works not our own. We believe, help our unbelief. We believe, forgive us when we have not walked in this belief. Help us to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in knowledge. Cause the words of our mouths, and the meditations of our hearts to be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord. Forgive us that we have not made Your holy pleasure our ambition. Forgive us, and stir in us a zeal to love You by obeying Your commandments, by offering warm worship, by pursuing virtue, and by being zealous to walk in good works, in Jesus Christ in whose name we pray. Amen.

Confession of Faith
We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of his Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father; by whom all things were made; who for us and for our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; he suffered and was buried; and the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father; and he shall come again, with glory, to judge both the living and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.
And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets;
And we believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church; we acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and we look for the resurrection of the dead, and of the life of the world to come. Amen.

Prayer of Supplication & Lord’s Prayer
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
