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

And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
which was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried:
he descended into hell;1
the third day he arose 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 Ghost;
the holy catholick church;
the communion of saints;
the forgiveness of sins;
the resurrection of the body;
and the life everlasting.



1. i.e. Continued in the state of the dead, and under the power of death till the third day.
