Bible Passage:The Apostles' Creed
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried.

In this section we will, in the first part, treat of our belief concerning Jesus' Person and His humiliation. I believe that Jesus Christ is the true and only Son of God, begotten of the Father from all eternity, of the same eternal and divine nature and substance as God the Father; that the Father has given all things into His power, and that is true with respect to His humanity also. He is Lord of all those things which He created together with the Father in His divinity. I believe that there is no way of access to the Father, nor any believing in Him, neither by learning, nor by works, nor by human reason, nor by any creature either in heaven or in earth, but by Jesus Christ, who is the only "way" by which we come unto the Father. I believe that He, for my sake, was conceived by the Holy Ghost, without any seed of man, that He might, through the mercy of Himself and the Father, beget us again entirely anew; that He was born of the Virgin Mary, by which means He purifies my condemned and sinful birth and that of all who believe in Him. I believe that He underwent His sufferings and the cross for my sins and the sins of all who believe, so that our sins now do not hinder our salvation, but His suffering brings us under His saving and all-full promises. I believe that He died and was buried that He might make an end of, and bury, my sins and the sins of all those who believe.
Immortal honor to the Son,
Who makes Thine anger cease;
Our lives He ransomed with His own,
And died to make our peace.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him
and He will make your paths straight.
