bestows upon us His Holy Spirit, creating and renewing the Church of Jesus

proclaim the gospel to all the world and resist the powers of evil, to share in

of sins and fullness of grace, courage in the struggle for justice and peace,
His presence in trial and rejoicing and eternal life in His kingdom which has
We believe in the
resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the
resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of
honor, glory and power be unto Him.
