The congregation stands while reading the Creed.
Pastor: Let us confess our Christian faith:
We renounce the devil and all his works and all his
We believe in God the Father, almighty,
maker of heaven and earth.
We believe 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.
On the third day He rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and is sitting at the right hand of God the Father, almighty.
From there He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Holy Christian Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
