Church Confessions


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 power of the Holy Spirit, 
and born of the Virgin Mary/ 
He suffered under Pontious Pilate;
was crucified, and was buried.
He descended into hell.
The third day he rose again from the dead. 
He ascended into heaven,
and is seated on the the right hand of God the Father almighty.
From thence he shall come to judge the quick 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.


  1. "I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of slavery. You shall have no other gods before Me..."
    This commandment is to believe in the existence of God and His influence on events in the world [24], and that the goal of the redemption from Egypt was to become His servants (Rashi). It prohibits belief in or worship of any additional deities.

  2. "Do not make an image or any likeness of what is in the heavens above..."
    This prohibits the construction or fashioning of "idols" in the likeness of created things (beasts, fish, birds, people) and worshipping them.

  3. "Do not swear falsely by the name of the LORD..."
    This commandment is to never take the name of God in a vain, pointless or insincere oath.[25]

  4. "Remember [zachor] the Sabbath day and keep it holy" (the version in Deuteronomy reads shamor, "observe")
    The seventh day of the week is termed Shabbat and is holy, just as God ceased creative activity during Creation. The aspect ofzachor is performed by declaring the greatness of the day (kiddush), by having three festive meals, and by engaging inTorah study and pleasurable activities. The aspect of shamor is performed by abstaining from productive activity (39 melachot) on the Shabbat.

  5. "Honor your father and your mother..."
    The obligation to honor one's parents is an obligation that one owes to God and fulfills this obligation through one's actions towards one's parents.

  6. "Do not murder"
    Murdering a human being is a capital sin.[26]

  7. "Do not commit adultery."
    Adultery is defined as sexual intercourse between a man and a married woman who is not his wife.[25]

  8. "Do not steal."
    According to Rashi, this is not understood as stealing in the conventional sense, since theft of property is forbidden elsewhere and is not a capital offense. In this context it is to be taken as "do not kidnap."[25]

  9. "Do not bear false witness against your neighbor"
    One must not bear false witness in a court of law or other proceeding.

  10. "Do not covet your neighbor's..."
    One is forbidden to desire and plan how one may obtain that which God has given to another. Maimonides makes a distinction in codifying the laws between the instruction given here in Exodus (You shall not covet) and that given in Deuteronomy (You shall not desire), according to which one does not violate the Exodus commandment unless there is a physical action associated with the desire, even if this is legally purchasing an envied object.

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty
maker of heaven and earth, 
of all that is, seen and unseen. 

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation.
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and Son he is worshiped and Glorified.
He was spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.


Matthew 6:9-13
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts (trespasses), as we forgive our debtors (trespassers).
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.


Review our Vows often so that we remember in Good TImes and in the Mire how to be under the beautiful wings of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ.
Man's Vow:
Do you Gregory, take Jessica, whom you now hold by the hand to be your lawful and wedded wife, and do you promise in the presence of God and these witnesses to be to her a faithful, loving, and devoted husband, so long as you both shall live?
Woman's Vow:
Do you Jessica, take Gregory, whom you now hold by the hand to be your lawful and wedded husband and do you promise in the presence of God and these witnesses to be to him a faithful, loving, and obedient wife, so long as you both shall live?
The Prayer:
Almighty and ever blessed God, our heavenly father, place the seal of your loving approval upon the union of these two hearts and lives in the sacred bonds of matrimony. Enable your servants, and by the Gift of the sufficient grace to be faithful in keeping the vows they have now assumed. Wether in prosperity or in adversity, in sickness or in health, in sorrow or in joy, may their love and sympathy for each other never fail. Into your holy keeping we now commit them, praying that they may ever live "as being heirs together of the grace of life." (I Peter 3:7) For Jesus' sake. Amen.
