Please note that the resources below have been prepared for congregations with limited administrative support and represent only one combination of the available service orders, readings, etc. Every effort will be made to vary the liturgy each week. If we have died with Christ, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him; if we deny him, he will also deny us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful — for he cannot deny himself.
Choose one of the following: Traditional Merciful Lord, grant to your faithful people pardon and peace, that they may be cleansed from all their sins and serve you with a quiet mind; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. OR, modernised traditional Merciful Lord, give pardon and peace to your faithful people.
Cleanse us from all our sins, so that we may serve you with minds set at rest. OR, alternative Let us pray that we may depend on God. Open not only our hands, but our hearts also, so that we recognise your goodness, count all things loss in comparison with you, and desire to be made like you.
OR, new Let us pray for thankfulness. Make us always thankful and ready to praise you, rejoicing in your goodness. This is the gospel of the Lord. Praise to you, O Christ. Lord Jesus, thank you for having mercy on us and healing us of our sin. Make us thankful in words and deeds.
Offering Prayer Faithful God, accept the gifts we bring out of thankfulness for all you have done for us, and use them for your service. Visit the LCA International Mission website to access their prayer points, which you may like to include in the Prayer of the Church, or in your bulletin.
It is indeed right and good, Lord God, holy Father, that we should at all times and in all places give thanks to you, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood remain in me, and I in them. OR This cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks is a communion in the blood of Christ. This bread that we break is a communion in the body of Christ.
Come, for everything is ready. See the service order for a standard post-communion prayer. Alternatively, use the third prayer of the day as listed above at this point. It may be modified as follows : Lord, in this sacrament you have placed into our open hands the body and blood of Christ. OR Go in peace and thankfulness. God has made you whole.

Thirdly, it is not uncommon in this day of modern innovation for a priest to have his opinions influenced by non-Orthodox ideas and practices. The Orthodox do not accept sprinkling as a proper form of baptism, yet many Orthodox practice this.
Once again, this is not considered to be a second baptism, nor does it imply that the person was not part of the Church, but rather, that the form used was not canonically acceptable and needed correction. This last area is not a black and white area and requires the careful judgment of a bishop in order to administer.

Such cases are very delicate in nature and are never taken lightly. Having re-read the article, there remains a problem in trying to speak of Orthodox and non-Orthodox in the same parragraph.
The Full Blessing of Pentecost
This may be an unpopular viewpoint in the annals of world church politics and it is not meant to say that only the Orthodox are Christians. What it says is that membership in the Orthodox Church through baptism can only be accomplished by the Orthodox. While the form is important, it is not a magical formula, non-Orthodox following the form do not somehow magically create Orthodox Christians even though they themselves are not Orthodox. The baptism and indeed the sacraments of all other Christian denominations are meaningless to Orthodox.
The grace of God is given to Orthodox clergy through the laying on of hands and attaches to apostolic succession; no other church is accepted as having this. Roman Catholics, Anglicans, Methodists, are not members in any way of the Orthodox Church, they do not confess to believe exactly what we believe, they are not in communion with us, therefore their rites and rituals have no significance with us.
Planning - Pentecost/Memorial Day Weekend (U.S.)
If at one time they were members of the church years ago , they are broken away, their apostolic succession is broken, and the Grace of God, as we Orthodox understand it, is no longer present within them. This may not be a very PC thing to say out loud, but it is the truth as far as the Orthodox are concerned. Phiddipus , 26 October UTC. I reverted edits by an anonymous user who added a lengthy section on the United Pentecostal Church.
I've nothing against that perspective being part of the article, but the material was really long , not wikified, POV, and was pretty much just verbatim from a tract by that denomination possible copyright issue? If anyone wishes to add info from this perspective, please do so, but be concise, write in "wiki language", be NPOV, and be original.
Or do you just renounce your faith and it doesnt even matter? Technically no.
A Fourth Church Sermon by John Buchanan | June 12,
Some churches allow re-baptism, and would suggest that on occasion, an individual could do things so sinful that they would need to be re-baptized to eliminate all thier sins. Many churches, however, believe that Baptism imparts a spiritual "seal" on the individual, and can never be undone. The Roman Catholic Church, for example, does not rebaptize, as the point of baptism is the removal of original sin, which can never be returned.
A secondary effect is to eliminate personal sins, however, this can be done through the Sacrament of Reconciliation often called confession , so a baptism is not needed to forgive personal sins.

There would be no need for a de-baptism the only effect of which would be to reinstate the sins previously forgiven and as the real point of baptism is to forgive sins, which is something God does, and once He forgives them, they are forgiven forever. In short, no, no de-baptism, but perhaps re-baptism if allowed.
John's baptism was a baptism of repentance but Jesus Christ had nothing to repent of, He had no sin! If we do not acknowledge that Jesus Christ, God's Word, came in sinless human flesh to perfectly fulfill all of the OT Law for us, including all physical water baptisms, then we will never understand the rest of His saving Gospel Truth, 2Jn.
Failure to acknowledge and declare the righteousness of the Son of God will result in spiritual blindness. No one will receive God's Grace unless they first receive His righteousness through faith, a faith as Abraham had, Ro Study the words, "righteous" and "righteousness" in the Psalms, the Proverbs, the Prophets and the entire NT. Those who believe in physical water baptisms of any kind cannot be saved, they have followed another gospel that is no gospel at all, 2Co ; Gal This is very critical information that no one can prove wrong; it is not wrong, Lk God said He would destroy the wisdom of this world and He has done exactly that, 1Co For lots of free Biblical proof, just email me at canawedding aol.
Canawedding , 1 October UTC. In the end, I agree with Thaddeus Ryan in that this is an encyclopeida and that there are differences of opinion on the subject of baptism, therfore all views need to be explained in an encyclopeida. It's bewildering to me how some Catholic kids are given a primary and secondary education in private Catholic Schools, costing their parents thousands of dollars in tuition fees. They are baptized by a priest, confirmed by a bishop, but later, as young adults, they marry a person of another faith but have no regard for baptism of their own offsprings.
Attending Mass becomes irrelevant. Instead, the child is brought up to excel in contact sports. These kids begin to crave the cheers and applause of the spectators who attend the games they play.
