The Foundation for Our Beliefs
The Apostle's Creed
We* believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
We 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.
* We have substituted the pronoun “We” for the traditional “I” as we believe in the power of this corporate expression of belief.
** The term “catholic” simply means universal or worldwide, we are professing our belief in the value of the worldwide ecumenical Church of Jesus.
