Almighty God, on this day you opened the way of eternal life to every race and nation by the promised gift of your Holy Spirit: Shed abroad this gift throughout the world by the preaching of the Gospel, that it may reach to the ends of the earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
We are a community of Christians seeking to live the New Life of God as Jesus teaches us and leads us. We believe that the most important thing in the world is to make contact with God. Jesus taught us that God is incredibly generous and loving, and he shows us a new way of life that opens us to God's love. We seek to follow Jesus into the New Life that he offers.
We worship and live our lives guided by the ancient tradition that has been handed down in the Church from the beginning. We are called to make that tradition real in modern life; so we say Ancient Faith—Modern Life. Guided by this tradition we experience the wonderful love and power of God in our daily lives.
