I learned to recite the Apostles Creed as a small child. It’s memory and words of belief and faith have remained with me all these many years. If I were asked to testify to what I sincerely believe about God and life, this would be it.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
the 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.
The third day He rose from the dead
and 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 (or universal) church;
the communion of saints;
the forgiveness of sins;
the resurrection of the body;
and the life everlasting.
