The Apostles' Creed

I BELIEVE in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth:

I BELIEVE in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary: Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and was buried: He descended into hell; The third day he rose again 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 living and the dead.

I BELIEVE in the Holy Ghost: The holy catholic church; The communion of saints: The forgiveness of sins: The Resurrection of the body: And the life everlasting.


"For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one." (1John 5:7)

Note: "catholic church" appearing in the creed means "universal Christian": it does not refer to the Catholic denomination.
