I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
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,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and 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. AMEN.

and that we have not loved one another as Christ hath loved us.

Thy life is within our souls, but our selfishness hath hindered Thee.
We have not lived by faith.
We have resisted Thy Spirit.
We have neglected Thine inspirations.

Forgive what we have been;
help us amend what we are;
and in Thy Spirit direct what we shall be;
that Thou mayest come into full glory of Thy creation, in us and in all men;

For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me.

(Romans 12:1,2)

Week 21 
29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. 31 but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:29,31)

Week 15
12 Let no man despise thy youth: but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 15 Meditate upon these things: give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. (1 Timothy 4:12,15)

Week 14
20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; Yet not I but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. 21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for is righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

Week 30
9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished. 21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. (1 Peter 2: 9, 21)

Week 29
12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. 13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. (1 Corinthians 10: 12, 13)

Week 28
15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world. The love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. (1 John 2:15,16)

Week 26
7 Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. (1 John 4:7-9)

(Romans 12:1,2)

Week 21 
29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. 31 but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:29,31)

Week 15

Week 14

When all we know is doubt and fear
There is only One Foundation
We believe, We believe
In this broken generation
When all is dark, You help us see
There is only One Salvation
We believe, We believe

We believe in God the Father
We believe in Jesus Christ
We believe in the Holy Spirit
And He’s given us new life
We believe in the crucifixion
We believe that He conquered death
We believe in the resurrection
And He’s comin’ back again, we believe

So, let our faith be more than anthems
Greater than the songs we sing
And in our weakness and temptations
We believe, We believe!

Let the lost be found and the dead be raised!
In the here and now, let love invade!
Let the church live loud, our God we’ll say
We believe, We believe!
And the gates of hell will not prevail!
For the power of God Has torn the veil!
Now we know Your love will never fail!
We believe, We believe!

We believe in God the Father!
We believe in Jesus Christ!
We believe in the Holy Spirit!
And He’s given us new life!
We believe in the crucifixion!
We believe that He conquered death!
We believe in the resurrection!
And He’s comin’ back again!
