Creed

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 Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into Hell.

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 the life everlasting.

Amen.

*The basic creed of reformed churches, the Apostles’ Creed has received this title because of its great antiquity, dating from a half century or so from the last writings of the New Testament. The word “catholic” used in the creed is derived from the greek word “katholikos” meaning universal or world-wide and is not a reference to the Roman Catholic Church.
