The Apostles' Creed
The Traditional Version

Editorial Note: This Textus Receptus version of the creed can be traced back to the 8th century A.D. The creed is important to the Church. It is a concise summary of the teaching of the New Testament. Therefore, it is an invaluable tool toward a reasonable understanding of the Christian faith. The term catholic does not refer to the Roman Catholic Church, but meaning the entire church. As defined in Webster's Dictionary:

catholic: pertaining to the whole Christian body or church.

I believe in God the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;

And in Jesus Christ His only Son Our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried.
He descended into hell.
The third day he rose 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 Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
