CALL to WORSHIP L eader: People: Leader: People:

Around the world this day the church celebrates the reign of Christ Christ Jesus, friend of the poor, the meek and the merciful, who has been enthroned above all authority and power in this world and in the world that is to come. Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth, serve the Lord with gladness, come into his presence with singing. God has placed everything under Christ’s wounded feet, appointed the one who wore a crown of thorns as the supreme head of the church, his body. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, come into his courts with praise. Give thanks and praise his loving name!

* HYMN Rejoice the Lord is King | No. 715

* AFFIRMATION of FAITH Kevin Davis A Statement of Faith of the Korean Methodist Church, adpt. Leader: Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is the one true church, apostolic and universal, whose holy faith let us now declare: All: We believe in the one God, maker and ruler of all things, the source of all goodness and beauty, all truth and love. We believe in Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, our teacher, example and Redeemer, the Savior of the world. We believe in the Holy Spirit, God present with us for guidance, for comfort and for strength. We believe in the forgiveness of sins, in the life of love and prayer and in grace equal to every need. We believe in the Word of God contained in the Old and New Testaments as the sufficient rule both of faith and of practice. We believe in the Church as the fellowship, for worship and for service, of all who are united to the living Lord. We believe in the kingdom of God as the divine rule in human society, in the final triumph of righteousness and in the life everlasting. Amen.
