Growing in Love of God and Neighbor

The Baptismal Covenant

I believe in God, the Father almighty,

creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,

He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit

and born of the Virgin Mary.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended to the dead.

On the third day he rose again.

He ascended into heaven,

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic Church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting.

With God’s help, I will continue in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of the bread, and in the prayers.

With God’s help, I will persevere in resisting evil, and whenever I fall into sin, repent and return to the Lord.

With God’s help, I will proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ.

With God’s help, I will seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving my neighbor as myself.

With God’s help, I will strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.
