Affirmation of Faith: Titus 2-3

Here’s an affirmation of faith from The Jubilate Group website.  It was written by Michael Perry.

Affirmation of Faith
(based on Titus 2:11-15; 3:1-8)

The grace of God has dawned upon us with healing for all the world, and so we rejoice to declare our faith in him:

We believe in God the Father,
who has revealed his love
and kindness to us,
and in his mercy saved us,
not for any good deed of our own.
but because he is merciful.

We believe in Jesus Christ,
who gave himself up for us
to free us from our sin,
and set us apart for himself -
a people eager to do good.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,
whom God poured out on us generously
through Christ our Saviour,
so that justified by grace
we might become heirs
with the hope of eternal life. Amen.
