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 crucrified, dead, and buried, He descended into Hades j 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 one unbegotten only true God Almighty, the Father of Christ, the Cneator and Maker of all things, of whom are all things:


And in the Lord Jesus Christ his only begotten Son, the first-born of the whole creation, who was begotten before the ages by the good will of the Father, By whom all things were made both in heaven and earth, visible and invisible; Who in the last times came down from heaven, and took flesh upon him, and was born of the holy Virgin Mary, and lived an holy life according to the laws of his God and Father; And was crucified under Pontius Pilate, and died for us; The third day after his Passion he rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of the Father; And he shall come again with glory at the end of the world to judge the quick and the dead: whose kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, that is, the Comforter, who hath wrought effectually in all the Saints from the beginning of the world, and was afterwards sent to the Apostles by the Father, according to the promise of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and after the Apostles to all believers in the holy Catholick Church: And I believe the resurrection of the flesh; And the remission of sins; And the kingdom of heaven, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
