We believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord
Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into hell.
The third day He arose again from the dead.

whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

and life everlasting.

Credo in Deum Patrem omnipotentem;
Creatorem coeli et terrae.
Et in Jesum Christum, Filium ejus unicum, Dominum nostrum;
qui conceptus est de Spiritu Sancto, natus ex Maria virgine;
passus sub Pontio Pilato, crucifixus, mortuus, et sepultus;
descendit ad inferna; tertia die resurrexit a mortuis;
ascendit ad coelos; sedet ad dexteram Dei Patris omnipotentis;
inde venturus (est) judicare vivos et mortuos.
Credo in Spiritum Sanctum;
sanctam ecclesiam catholicam;
sanctorum communionem;
remissionem peccatorum;
carnis resurrectionem;
vitam oeternam. Amen.

Le Symbole des Ap?tres
Je crois en Dieu, le P?re tout-puissant, créateur du ciel et de la terre.
Et en Jésus-Christ, son Fils unique, notre Seigneur,
qui a été con?u de Saint-Esprit,
et qui est né de la Vierge Marie.
Il a souffert sous Ponce Pilate,
il a été crucifié,
il est mort,
il a été enseveli,
il est descendu aux enfers.
Le troisi?me jour il est ressuscité des morts,
il est monté aux cieux,
il si?ge ? la droite de Dieu.
Il viendra de l? pour juger les vivants et les morts.
Je crois en l'Esprit-Saint.
Je crois la Sainte Eglise catholique,
la communion des saints,
la rémission des péchés,
la résurrection de la chair,
et la vie éternelle. Amen





The Nicene Creed
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, both seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, one in Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven
By the power of the Holy Spirit he was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
For our sake he was crucified unter Pontius Pilate; he suffered, died, and was buried.
On the third day he rose again in fulfillment of the Scriptures;
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.
Amen.
