I am the Lord, who frustrates the omens of liars, and makes fools of diviners. Isaiah 44:25
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God. 1 John 4:1
Purifying Fire, your light is our hope. Burn away the lies we tell ourselves; cleanse our souls and make us your own; open our eyes to your truth and spirit. Only by your Spirit do we pray. Amen.
Belief of the Church
With the whole of Christendom, we share faith in God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe and confess that God has revealed Himself once and for all in His Son Jesus Christ; that our Lord has redeemed us with whole of mankind by His death and His resurrection; and that there is no salvation apart from Him. We believe that He is present with us in the Word and the Sacrament; that He directs and unites us through His Spirit and thus forms us into a Church. We hear Him summoning us to follow Him, and pray Him to use us in His Service. He joins us together mutually so that knowing ourselves to be members of His Body we become willing to serve each other.
