Affirmation of Faith – “The Apostle’s Creed” (Unison)
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, Suffered under Pontius
Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried: He descended into hell; 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 the Holy Spirit; The holy catholic
church; The Communion of Saints; The Forgiveness of sins; The Resurrection of the Body, And the
Life everlasting. Amen.
