Apostles’ Creed

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

And 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 buried:
He descended into hell;
The third day he rose again from the dead:
He ascended into heaven,
And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty:
From thence he shall come to judge the quick 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.
Amen.

*that is, the true Christian church of all times and all places

This creed is called the Apostles’ Creed not because the Apostles wrote it but because it is a summary of their teachings.
