The Apostles Creed is an early Christian statement used as a creed or symbol of faith. It was used by a

wide variety of different Christian denominations for both liturgical and catechetical purposes, based on

the understanding of the gospels.

The first mention of the Apostles Creed historically occurs in a letter dating from 390 a.d. from a synod

in Milan, was believed at that time to have been an divinely inspired creed that each of the 12 Apostles

had contributed an article to.


1. I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth:

2. And in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord:

3. Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary:

4. Suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, dead and buried: He descended into hell:

5. The third day he rose again from the dead:

6. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty:

7. From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead:

8. I believe in the Holy Ghost:

9. I believe in the holy catholic church: the communion of saints:

10. The forgiveness of sins:

1l. The resurrection of the body:

12. And the life everlasting. Amen.
