Hymn # 781 “Children of the Heavenly Father” 

Celebrating the Sacrament of Holy Baptism Hymnal, Pg. 227—228 

P: People of God, do you promise to support this family and pray for them in 

their life in Christ? 

All: We do. 

P: I invite you all to join together as we reject sin and confess the faith of the church. Do you renounce the devil and all the forces that defy God? 

All: I renounce them. 

P: Do you renounce the powers of this world that rebel against God? 

All: I renounce them. 

P: Do you renounce the ways of sin that draw you from God? 

All: I renounce them. 

P: Do you believe in God the Father? 

All: I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. 

P: Do you believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God? 


All: I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living and the dead. 

P: Do you believe in God the Holy Spirit? 

All: I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. 

P: The Lord be with you. 

All: And also with you. 

P: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. 

All: It is right to give God thanks and praise. 

P: We give you thanks, O God, for in the beginning your Spirit moved over the waters and by your Word you created the world, calling forth life in which you took delight. Through the waters of the flood, you delivered Noah and his family, and through the sea you led your people Israel from slavery into freedom. At the river your Son was baptized by John and anointed with the Holy Spirit. By the baptism of Jesus’ death and resurrection you set us free from the power of sin and death and raise us up to live in you. Pour out your Holy Spirit, the power of your living Word, that all those washed in the waters of baptism may be given new life. To you be given honor and praise through Jesus Christ our Lord, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, now and forever. 

All: Amen

Hymn # 595 “Jesus Loves Me!“ 

L: The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ; the love of God, and the communion of 

the Holy Spirit be with you all. 

C: And also with you. 

L: Let us pray. 

All: Lord God, your lovingkindness always goes before us and follows after us. Summon us into your light, and direct our steps in the ways of goodness that come through the cross of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.

Psalm Psalm 27: 1, 4—9 Pg. 864 


PS 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation--whom shall I fear? The LORD is 

the stronghold of my life--of whom shall I be afraid? 

PS 27:4 One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the 

house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the 

LORD and to seek him in his temple. 

PS 27:5 For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide 

me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock. 


PS 27:6 Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his 

tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD. 

PS 27:7 Hear my voice when I call, O LORD; be merciful to me and answer me. 


PS 27:8 My heart says of you, "Seek his face!" Your face, LORD, I will seek. 

PS 27:9 Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; 

you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, O God my Savior.
