Sermon Text for July 17th – The Apostles’ Creed

Beginning this Sunday, our church is going to incorporate the Apostles’ Creed into our regular liturgy. Because of this, I figured it would be a good time to engage in a study of the creed – where it came from, what it’s for, and what it means. Here’s the text of the creed:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
the Creator of heaven and earth,
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into hell.
The third day He arose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
from whence He shall 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 life everlasting.

Amen.
