Apostles’ Creed

I 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 Spirit,
        born of the Virgin Mary,
        suffered under Pontius Pilate,
        was crucified, dead, and buried;
    the third day he rose from the dead;
    he ascended into heaven,
        and sitteth at 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 Spirit,
    the holy catholic church,
    the communion of saints,
    the forgiveness of sins,
    the resurrection of the body,
    and the life everlasting. Amen.
