The Apostle’s Creed

There is nothing like saying or singing out loud one’s beliefs. The powerful words of the Apostle’s creed describe the very foundation on which I build my entire life. It is the reason I love, I laugh, I weep, I trust, I hope…

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

I 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, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will 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.

我信上帝,全能的父,创造天地的主。

我信我主耶稣基督,上帝的独生子;

因着圣灵感孕,从童贞女马利亚所生;

在本丢彼拉多手下受难,被钉在十字架上,受死,埋葬;

降在阴间;第三天从死里复活;

他升天,坐在全能父上帝的右边;

将来必从那里降临,审判活人,死人。

我信圣灵;

我信圣而公之教会;我信圣徒相通;

我信罪得赦免;

我信身体复活;

我信永生。阿们!
