Congregational Affirmation of Faith: We Belong to God

None of us lives to himself,
and none of us dies to himself.
For if we live, we live to the Lord,
and if we die, we die to the Lord.
So then, whether we live or whether we die,
we are the Lord’s.

We are not our own,
for we were bought with a price.
Our Lord Jesus Christ gave himself for us
to redeem us from all lawlessness
and to purify for himself a people for his own possession
who are zealous for good works.

(Based on Romans 14:7–8, 1 Corinthians 6:19–20, Titus 2:14)
