THE APOSTLES’ CREED


In the Name of Christ
I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth:
Sowing, GROWing, and Serving
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord;
1741 - 2011
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
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 Ghost;
the holy catholic church;
the communion of saints;
the forgiveness of sins;
the resurrection of the body;
and the life everlasting. Amen.

GLORIA PATRI

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without
end. Amen. Amen.
