Apostles' Creed

What do Catholics Believe?

Our statement of faith is the Apostles' 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 to the dead. 
On the third day He rose again. 
He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father
He will 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 body, and the life everlasting.  Amen

The Apostles' Creed is biblically based.  It has been around since the early church years as a statement of faith.  A standard was needed to judge whether a teaching was truth, or heresy.

As Catholics, we state the Apostles' Creed EACH time we pray the rosary.  The Apostles' Creed is stated in EVERY Catholic home, in EVERY Catholic Church, in EVERY state, in EVERY country and in EVERY continent around the world as we pray.

Our statement of faith has weathered the test of time.

As Catholics, we have another creed - The Nicene Creed which is a longer version of our statement of faith.  More on that another day...
