The Apostles' Creed

I believe in God the Father, all powerful, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. It was conceived by the work and grace of the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under the power of Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended to the underworld. On the third day he rose from the dead. He ascended to the heavens, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father. From there he must come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, in the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal life. Amen.
