The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,

the Maker of heaven and earth,

and in Jesus Christ, His only 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.


The Apostles’ Creed dates from the earliest history of the Church–fifty to seventy-five years after the latest New Testament writings.

* “Holy catholic church” refers not to the Roman Catholic Church but to the universal church.
