The Apostles' Creed
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 Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; the third
day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and
sitteth on 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
Ghost; the holy universal church; the communion of saints; the
forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached
unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By
which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto

of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins
according to the scriptures; And that He was buried, and that He
rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, [here
is] water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If
thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered
and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And he
commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into
the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him. And when
they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught
away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way

have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?
On the Coming of the Lord (for the church 1st, with the church
1Thessalonians 4:13-18 But I would not have you to be
ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow
not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus
died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God
bring with Him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord,
that we which are alive [and] remain unto the coming of the Lord
shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord Himself shall
descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel,
and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together
with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall
we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these

man severally as he will.
