Apostles Creed

Apostles Creed




I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
    the 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 arose 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.


*catholic
