CHURCH OF OUR FATHER, EPISCOPAL
FAMILY
SPIRITUALITY & CHRIST CENTERED
Church Heading for Memorial Church of Our Father

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection
of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who are being protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
I Peter 1:3 (NRSV)

His Resurrection, Ascension
and Future Return.

 


Episcopalians read and worship from The Book of Common Prayer and the Lectionary, which includes scripture
from the Revised Standard
Version of the Bible.

Lionel L. Mitchell, author of Praying Shapes Believing Says,
"Probably more than any other contemporary religious group, Episcopalians are people of the prayer book. Not only do we use The Book of Common Prayer for the conduct of our public services; it is the guide for our private prayer and the source of most of our theology . . . The prayer book not only provides a framework for the liturgical life of the Church; it also provides for the full and active participation of the entire people of
God in that life."

Celebrating Christ in the Eucharist,
his Body and Blood and His strength
so that we might serve others, doing
good works in the name of our Lord.

. . . I have been crucified with Christ and it is no longer I who live, but is is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Galations 2:19-20 (NRSV)

His Atoning Death and the offering of His Body & Blood.

PROCLAMATION: We belive in the truth expressed by the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed.

      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 HOLY SPIRIT THROUGH THE VIRGIN MARY. HE SUFFERED UNDER PONTIUS PILATE, WAS CRUCIFIED, DIED, AND WAS BURIED. HE DESCENDED TO THE DEAD (PREVIOUSLY HELL). ON THE THIRD DAY HE ROSE AGAIN. HE ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN, AND IS SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD 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.
