The saints at Providence Presbyterian Church recite this ancient creed in unison every week during the morning service of worship as a confession of our faith. Jesus said, “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. (Matt. 10:32 KJV)

I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary;
suffered under Pontius Pilate;
was crucified, died, and buried;
he descended into hell;
the third day he rose again from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from there he shall come to judge the living 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.
