Know it! Believe it! Live it! All: We are forgiven, loved and made free in the saving love of Jesus Christ. ♪ ♪ Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia! ♪ ♪
All: Righteous God, you have crowned Jesus Christ as Lord of all. We confess that we have not bowed before him, and we are slow to acknowledge his rule. We give allegiance to the powers of this world, and fail to be governed by justice and love. Prayer of Confession In response to God’s infinite love and mercy, we pray together:
In your mercy, forgive us. Raise us to acclaim him as king of kings and ruler of all, That we may be loyal ambassadors, obeying the commands of our Lord Jesus Christ, sharing the good news of his life, death and resurrection, and living out our lives in gratitude and love.
A Time of Christian Witness ~ We share the presence of God In our lives.

Gospel John 18: 33-37 Then Pilate entered the headquarters * again, summoned Jesus, and asked him, ‘Are you the King of the Jews?’ Jesus answered, ‘Do you ask this on your own, or did others tell you about me?’ Pilate replied, ‘I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests have handed you over to me. What have you done?’ Jesus answered, ‘My kingdom is not from this world. If my kingdom were from this world, my followers would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews.
But as it is, my kingdom is not from here.’ Pilate asked him, ‘So you are a king?’ Jesus answered, ‘You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.’ This is the gospel of the Lord. Thanks be to God.
WE BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST, SON OF THE ONE GOD, MAKER AND SUSTAINER OF EARTH, SEA AND SKY. BORN OF MARY’S WOMB, FAITHFUL TO THE GOD OF ABRAHAM AND SARAH, JESUS HEALED THE SICK, SERVED THE POOR, AND PROCLAIMED HEAVEN ON EARTH. CONDEMNED BY THE RELIGIOUS, CRUCIFIED BY THE STATE, HE DIED BUT TRANSFORMED EVEN DEATH AND ROSE TO LIFE EVERYLASTING. Affirmation of Faith
HE BLESSED THE DISCIPLES WITH HIS HOLY SPIRIT AND SENT THEM FORTH, EAST AND WEST, NORTH AND SOUTH. WE COMMIT OURSELVES TO JESUS, TO ONE ANOTHER AS BROTHERS AND SISTERS AND TO HIS MISSION IN THE WORLD IN THE GRACE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. AMEN.
