I believe in God the Father Almighty; Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the Holy Ghost, and born of the virgin, Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into Hades.
On the third day He rose again, from the dead, ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He will come to judge the living 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.
[NOTE: The term "holy catholic Church" has been a point of confusion as we confess the creed. The word "catholic" refers not to the Roman Catholic Church, rather to the universal church of believers of all time and place. When we confess that we believe in the holy catholic Church we are confessing that God has set apart for Himself, from all peoples and from all times, a redeemed and peculiar people—a holy nation. We are confessing that God's work of redemption is from generation to generation and His promise is eternal!]
