MEMBERSHIP in HISTORIC LIBERTY HILL AME CHURCH


Each member is expected to participate in the church and its activities as much as possible. Each member is expected to pay tithes and offerings and donate $10.00 each month to the Building Fund. Members who live in the area are expected and encouraged to be active on various committees and groups.


As a full member or member-in-training of Historic Liberty Hill and the African Methodist Episcopal Church, certain affirmations, prayers, and confessions are expected to be learned and recited at appropriate times during various services. Two of those are the Affirmation of Faith, also known as The Apostles’ Creed, and the General Confession. The Apostles’ Creed is recited every Sunday during morning worship. The General Confession is recited during the Lord’s Supper on the first Sunday of each month.





Affirmation of Faith*

(The Apostles’ Creed)

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ his only son our Lord who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried. The third day he arose from the dead; he ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Church universal, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. Amen.


General Confession*

Almighty God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Maker of all things, Judge of all people, we acknowledge and bewail our manifold sins and wickedness which we from time to time most grievously have committed by thought, word, and deed against Your Divine Majesty, provoking most justly your wrath and indignation against us. We do earnestly repent and are heartily sorry for these out misdoings; the remembrance of them is grievous unto us. Have mercy upon us, have mercy upon us, most merciful Father, for your Son our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake; forgive us all that is past, and grant that we may ever hereafter serve and please you in newness of life, to the honor and glory of your name, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
