*STATEMENT OF FAITH (Excerpts from THE CONFESSION OF 1967) which is read by the congregation following Rev. Julia's sermon.
In Jesus Christ, God was reconciling the world to himself. Jesus Christ is God with man. He is the eternal Son of the Father, who became man and lived among us to fulfill the work of reconciliation. He is present in the church by the power of the Holy Spirit to continue and complete his mission ...
To be reconciled to God is to be sent into the world as his reconciling community ...
Already God's reign is present as a ferment in the world, stirring hope in men and
preparing the world to receive its ultimate judgment and redemption. With an urgency born of this hope, the church applies itself to present tasks and strives for a better world .... In steadfast hope, the church looks beyond all partial achievement to the final triumph of God ... Amen.
