This is the baptismal creed used in the Western Church, which is also recited at the daily offices of Morning and Evening Prayer. At one time it was believed that the Creed was composed by the twelve Apostles, each of whom contributed one clause. The Apostles’ Creed is reprinted here as it appears in the Book of Common Prayer.
Text of The Apostles’ Creed
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 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.
