Bible Passage:The Apostles' Creed
I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy Christian Church, the communion of Saints; the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
* * *
That is, I believe that the Holy Ghost is God together with the Father and the Son, and that there is no way unto the Father through the life, suffering, and death of Christ, but by the leading and governing of the Holy Ghost. It is by Him that God the Father and the Son quicken, call, move, and draw me and all who believe, It is He who through Christ and in Christ gives us life, and sanctifies us that we may come unto the Father. It is this Spirit by whom the Father works all His works in us through and in Christ, and by whom He administers unto us life. I believe that there is but one holy Church of Christians throughout the whole world, that is, a company or united multitude of saints, or righteous and believing men, and that the same is gathered together, sanctified, and governed by the same Holy Ghost. I believe that in this company of saints, all things are common, and that one bears the burden of the other. I believe that the remission of sins is nowhere to be found but among that company of saints. I believe also, that no works, however great and splendid they may be, can profit anything toward the remission of sins, if you are not found in this company. I believe that there will be a resurrection of the dead; in which this same Holy Ghost will raise up all flesh, that is, all men according to the body and flesh, both godly and ungodly. I believe that after that resurrection there will be an eternal life of the righteous, and an eternal death of the wicked.
To Thine almighty Spirit be
Immortal glory given,
Whose teachings bring us near to Thee,
And train us up for heaven.
