The Apostles Creed

I believe in God,(1)the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth,(2)

And in Jesus Christ,(3) His only Son,(4) our Lord,(5) who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,(6)

born of the Virgin(7) Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,(8) was crucified,(9) dead(10) and buried.(11)

He descended into paradise.(A)

The third day (12) He arose from the dead,(13) He ascended into Heaven

(14) and is seated at the right hand of God,(15) the Father Almighty. From thence He shall come to judge the quick* and the dead.

(16) I believe in the Holy Spirit,(17) the church universal,(18) the communion ** of saints,(19) the forgiveness of sins,

(20) the resurrection of the body,(21) and life everlasting.(22)

* “quick” means “spiritually alive” ** “communion” refers to “coming together”
