PROFESSION

I believe
in the Father, benevolent affection;
in the Almighty, saving power;
in the Creator, providence
for guarding, ruling, perfecting the
universe.
In Jesus, salvation,
in Christ, anointing;
in the Only‑begotten Son, sonship,
in the Lord, a master’s treatment,
in His conception and birth
the cleansing of our unclean conception
and birth;
in His sufferings, which we owed,
that we might not pay;
in His Cross the curse of the law
removed;
in His death the sting of death;
in His, burial eternal destruction in the
tomb;
in His deseent, whither we ought,
that we might not go;
in His resurrection,
as the first-fruits of them that sleep;
83in His ascent, to prepare a place for us;
in His sitting, to appear and intercede;
in His return, to take unto Him His own;
in His judgment, to render to each
according to his works.
In the Holy Ghost; power from on high,
transforming unto sanctity
from without and invisibly,
yet inwardly and evidently.
In the Church, a body mystical
of the called out, of the whole world,
unto intercourse in faith and holiness.
In the communion of saints,
members of this body,
a mutual participation in holy things,
for confidence of remission of sins,
for hope of resurrection, of translation,
to life everlasting.
