What We Believe

The 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.

 

*The word "catholic" does not refer to the Roman Catholic Church, but to the universal church of Jesus Christ.
