Assurance Of Forgiveness
The Apostle Paul has written: “If God is for us, who is against us? Neither death nor life, nor things present nor things to come, nor anything else in all creation, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
We believe the good news: in Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. Thanks be to God!
Affirmation Of Faith- “A Brief Statement of Faith” (11.1, 4, 5)
In life and in death we belong to God. Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, we trust in the one triune God, the Holy One of Israel, whom alone we worship and serve.
We trust in God the Holy Spirit everywhere the giver and renewer of life. The Spirit justifies us by grace through faith, sets us free to accept ourselves and to love God and neighbor, and binds us together with all believers in the one body of Christ, the Church. The same Spirit who inspired the prophets and apostles rules our faith and life in Christ through Scripture, engages us through the Word proclaimed, claims us in the waters of baptism, feeds us with the bread of life and the cup of salvation, and calls women and men to all ministries of the Church.
In a broken and fearful world, the Spirit gives us courage to pray without ceasing, to witness among all peoples to Christ as Lord and Savior, to unmask idolatries in Church and culture, to hear the voices of peoples long silenced, and to work with others for justice, freedom, and peace. In gratitude to God, empowered by the Spirit, we strive to serve Christ in our daily tasks and to live holy and joyful lives, even as we watch for God’s new heaven and new earth, praying, “Come, Lord Jesus!”
With believers in every time and place, we rejoice that nothing in life or in death can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Sermon - "Body and Soul" Rev Dr Jim Moran
Please let us know Your Comments:
Call To Worship (Psalm 29:1-2, 9-10)
Lord, You have searched me, and known me; You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
You discern my thoughts from far away.
You search out my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.
Even before a word is on my tongue, O Lord, you know it completely.
See if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (Psalm 139:1-4, 24)
Prayer Of Confession
Lord and Shepherd of us all, You have called us to serve You cheerfully, and to follow You faithfully. But we have turned a deaf ear to Your call; we have been so occupied with our own concerns that we have not stopped to listen for You. Forgive us for insisting upon our way, when You have called us to a better way. By Your Spirit, give us the minds and hearts of true disciples. Be glorified in our glad obedience to Your call, as we walk in free submission to Your will, according to the pattern of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Silent prayer of personal confession.)
Call To Confession
With the Apostle Paul, we say, “I see in my members another law at war with the law of my mind,
Making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members.
Wretched man that I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?
Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!” (Romans 7:23-25)
With thanksgiving to God for forgiveness we find in our Lord Jesus, let us confess our sins together, praying....
God of steadfast love, who generously gave Your beloved Son for the world, receive our gifts given in response to Your gracious love. Bless these gifts so that they may make a difference in our community and world, to Your glory, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on 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.
