“Do all the good you can,

In all the places you can,

At all the times you can,

To all the people you can,

As long as you can.”

-John Wesley, ‘Rules of Conduct’, Founder of Wesleyan Methodist Church

 

THE APOSTLES CREED

I believe in God almighty (the Father almighty)

And in Christ Jesus, his only Son, our Lord

Who was born of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary

Who was crucified under Pontius Pilate and was buried

And the third day rose from the dead

Who ascended into heaven

And sits on the right hand of the Father

Whence he comes to judge the living and the dead

And in the Holy Ghost

The holy church

The remission of sins

The resurrection of the flesh

The life everlasting.

-‘The Old Roman Creed’
