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,

He descended into hell;

from thence He shall come to 
judge the living and the dead. 
I believe in the Holy Spirit; 
the Holy Catholic* Church;
the communion of the saints;
the forgiveness of sin; 
the resurrection of the body;
and the life everlasting.
Amen.
