The Silent Confession of Sin


The Corporate Confession of Sin

Almighty and most merciful Father, we have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep. We have offended against your holy laws and followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have left undone those things which we ought to have done, and we have done those things which we ought not to have done; and there is no health in us.

But you, O Lord, have mercy on us, miserable offenders. Spare those who confess their sins. Restore those who are penitent, according to your promises declared to all people in Jesus Christ our Lord. And grant, most merciful Father, for his sake that we may from now on live a holy, righteous, and sober life, to the glory of your holy name. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.

The Confession of our Faith                              

I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost; Born of the Virgin Mary; Suffered under Pontius Pilate; Was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; The third day he rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven; And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; The holy catholic Church; The communion of saints; The forgiveness of sins; The resurrection of the body; And the life everlasting. AMEN.
