Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for 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.
