Hebrews 1:1-3           

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things,

 through whom he also created the world.

He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high…

Corporate Confession of Sin

The Valley of Vision

Thou righteous and holy Sovereign, in whose hand is my life and whose are all my ways; Keep me from fluttering about religion; fix me firm in it, for I am irresolute; my decisions are smoke and vapor, and I do not glorify Thee, or behave according to Thy will; O Thou Father of my spirit, Thou King of life, drive me not from Thy presence, but wound my heart that it may be healed; break it that Thine own hand may make it whole. In the name of Jesus Christ our Savior we pray. Amen.

Silent Confession of Sin

Assurance of Pardon 

Psalm 86:5

‘For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.’

Westminster Confession of Faith 

Modern Version           Of Christ the Mediator   8.2

The Son of God, the second person of the Trinity, being truly and eternally God, of one substance and equal with the Father, did, when the fullness of time had come, take upon himself man’s nature, with all its essential properties and common frailties, yet without sin. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit in the womb of the virgin Mary and of her substance. In this way, two whole natures, the divine and the human, perfect and distinct, were inseparably joined together in one person without being changed, mixed or confused. This person is truly God and truly man, yet one Christ,

 the only mediator between God and man.
