What I believe

I talk quite a bit about the Christian faith, but what do I believe? In short, what I believe about God and His son Jesus can best be described in the Apostles’ Creed, an early Christian creed.

I believe in God, the Father almighty,

creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of

the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, was died, and was buried, he

descended to the dead.

On the third day he rose again;

he ascended into heaven,

he is seated at the right hand of the Father,

and 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.

Amen.

– Apostles’ Creed, modern English version.
