We believe in one God,

Who reveals Himself as three distinct persons,

the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe in God the Father Almighty

Who is above all and through all,

Who is the giver of every good and perfect gift,

the greatest of which is salvation

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

We believe in God the Lord Jesus Christ,

His only begotten Son, by Whom and for Whom

all things were created,

indeed Who created the heavens and earth

in six days, and

Who upholds all things by the Word of His power;

Who is the Lamb of God

Who paid the penalty of eternal damnation

for the sins of all those who become saved;

Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit

and born of the virgin Mary;

who was condemned to die

by the God-appointed judge Pontius Pilate

and was crucified, dead, and buried.

The third day He arose,

which proved the penalty had been fully paid

for the sins of the elect.

He ascended into heaven and reigns over all

at the right hand of God the Father.

From thence He shall come on the last day

to judge the unsaved, both the living and the dead.

We believe in God the Holy Spirit,

by Whom we are born again;

Who has given us the Bible

which alone and in its entirety is the divine Word;

Who commissions and empowers the church

to send the Gospel into all the world.

We believe there is a holy church,

which consists of individuals throughout the world

who personally

have experienced the new birth of salvation,

whose sins have been forgiven,

who are a communion of saints,

who from the moment of salvation

have received eternal life,

whose bodies will be resurrected the last day

and who will live and reign with Christ

in the new heaven and the new earth forevermore.

Amen.
