The Apostles’ Creed

cir. AD 390


    I believe in God the Father, Almighty,
      Maker of heaven and earth;

    And in Jesus Christ, His only begotten 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.
