The Divine Liturgy is the main worship service of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahdo church. The Word of God, prayers, hymns, biblical readings and sermon are the main acts on our Sunday service. The liturgy is chanted using the Geez and the amharic languages. Parishinoers follow the priest. Our church believes in one God the almighty, creator of heaven, earth and all things visible and invisible. We believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who gave salivation to the descendants of Adam and Eve, Jesus was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and from the holy Virgin Mary. He became one of us, he was crucified for the sake of us, Jesus suffered, died, was buried and rose from the dead on the third day as was written in the holy scriptures, ascended in glory into heaven, sat at the right hand of His Father. The next time God comes is to judge the living and the dead. We believe in one holy, universal, apostolic church, and we believe in one baptism for the remission of sins, and we hope for the resurrection from the dead and the life to come, world without end. Amen!
