|CHRISTIANITY IN A CAPSULE: the Apostle's Creed|
|I believe in GOD, the Father almighty, creator of Heaven and Earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only SON, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT, and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come again 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 dead, and life everlasting. AMEN.|
