Statement of Faith
FAITH STATEMENT: THE APOSTLES’ CREED
The Apostles’ Creed is the oldest faith statement of the Christian Church, boiling down “the faith once delivered” as the historic church understood it.
• I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
• I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pon- tius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
• I 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.
