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, and suffered under Pontius Pilate, who was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell, and rose again on the third day, and ascended into heaven from where He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in Holy Spirit, in the holy universal church, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrectionof the dead, and lifeeverlasting.
