It’s called “Divine Service” for a reason.
It’s not about what we do for God, but what He does for us.
We are baptized into the Name of the only true God – The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – and we receive the forgiveness of sins, faith in Christ, and life everlasting.
Confession and Absolution
We confess our sins to the Lord, and He forgives us – on account of what Christ has done for us, in His perfect life, agonizing death, and glorious resurrection!
The Lord’s Supper
As children of God through Christ Jesus, we are welcomed to His table, to eat and drink His body and blood for the forgiveness of our sins and the strengthening of our faith.
