The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God, the Father

almighty, Creator 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, died and was buried; he

descended into hell; on the third

day he rose again from the dead;

he ascended into heaven, and is

seated at the right hand of God

the Father almighty; from there

he will come to judge the living

and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy

catholic Church, the communion

of saints, the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body, and

life everlasting. Amen.
