Affirmation of Faith
Let us affirm our faith in the triune God, the God of our baptism.
I believe in God,
maker of an unfinished world,
who calls us to participate in bringing about the fullness of Creation.
God, who created abundant resources to provide for all.
God, who has not divided people into rich and poor,
owners and slaves,
nor pitted us against each other because of race, color, social class or sex.
I believe in Jesus Christ
who was ridiculed, tortured, and executed for the sins of humankind.
He has overthrown the rule of evil and injustice
and continues to judge and redeem
the hatred and arrogance of human beings.
I believe in the Spirit of God
whose flame comforts us with divine presence
and causes our hearts to burn
for righteousness and justice.
I believe in the reconciling power of God
in our lives and in the world.
I believe that God, through people,
can bring peace and hope,
justice and equality,
the relief of suffering and pain,
and the final triumph of love and grace. Amen.
