THE ARTICLES OF OUR FAITH – The Apostle’s 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

Third day, he rose again from the dead

He ascended into heaven

And siteth on the right hand side of God, the Father Almighty

From thence, He shall come to judge the living and the dead

I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Celestial Church of Christ The communion of saints, forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body

And life everlasting (Amen).
