Declaration of the faith: The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty,

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to hell.
The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy Catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sin the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

Hymn: Ye gates lift up your heads on high

Ye gates, lift up your heads on high;
Ye doors that last for aye,
Be lifted up, that so the King
Of glory enter may.
But who of glory is the King?
The mighty Lord is this;
Ev’n that same Lord that great in might
And strong in battle is.
Ev’n that same Lord that great in might
And strong in battle is.

Ye gates, lift up your heads; ye doors,
Doors that do last for aye,
Be lifted up, that so the King
Of glory enter may.
But who is he that is the King,
The King of glory? Who is this?
The Lord of hosts, and none but he,
The King of glory is.
The Lord of hosts, and none but he,
