Statement of Faith

The following prayer embodies the heart of what we believe as Followers of Jesus. It is not intended to be a formal doctrinal statement, but rather a heartfelt expression of our gratitude to God.

Father,
We love you.
Thank you for this day.
Thank you for the beauty of creation.
Thank you for your son, Jesus—our Lord and Savior, who died on the cross for us.
Thank you for the Holy Spirit who indwells us to live out this new life.
Thank you for the Bible—the inspired, inherent, holy Word of God.
Thank you for the manifold gifts you give to the body of Christ.

Father,
Lead us today to people who do not know Jesus.
Give us the right words to help them understand their need to receive the gift of salvation.
Lead us to those among us who need encouragement, or a helping hand, or just to feel your love and kindness.
Lead us to teach them to recognize your voice and discern the miraculous plans you have for their lives.
Lead us to fulfill all of this in your strength; for we can do none of it on our own.

Father,
Thank you that through Jesus we have already overcome the struggles of this world.
Thank you that your plan culminates in a new heaven and a new earth for all who are yours.
Thank you for the life of love and joy we get to spend with you for all eternity.
Thank you that as we wait for Christ’s return, we get to spread the good news, walk in your Spirit, and learn to love you and others well.

In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
