    THE AFFIRMATION OF FAITH 

    I believe in God the Father Almighty, I believe in God the Father Almighty,  
    maker of heaven and earth; And 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, dead, and buried;    
    the third day he rose from the dead;    
    he ascended into heaven,      
    and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;      
    from thence he shall come to judge the quick 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.

    Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
