We had some technology issues this morning so you may have missed the fullness of this wonderful Affirmation of Faith taken by the words of our Confirmands. #confirmation #affirmationoffaith #ibelieve #connectwithcornerstone #technicaldifficulties
I believe in God.
The maker of Heaven and Earth,
The maker of everything
Who sent his son Jesus.
I believe in Jesus Christ.
The son of God and man.
Who taught us lessons on how to live,
Who was crucified and sacrificed his life for ours.
Who rose from the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
The Holy Spirit is part of the Holy trinity that is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
That helps us say no to Sin and lives in us.
I believe in the Church,
A place for worship, the house of God
But the church is more than the building, the church is the people of God.
We are the people of god, made in God’s image.
We are also sinners.
Wickedness and evil exist when people are dishonest and unkind to others,
Such as instances of bullying or racism.
Renouncing and rejecting those things means that I will not take part in those behaviors and I will stand up for those being mistreated.
I must resist evil, unjust or oppressive things such as lying, cheating, and stealing.
Peer pressure can influence bad behavior but I will resist.
I believe God loves us.
And we should love God and love others and the world.
