Author: Joseph of Jesus and Mary

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth;

I believe there is a God who has created me and the whole universe, I acknowledge that He is full of Power, Wisdom and Love, He is the author of everything that exists.

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord;

I believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, the Messiah, the Anointed One, He is the only begotten of God, eternally united to Him, He is the Word of God, true man and true God, He has received power over all creation as Lord because He is our Saviour.

Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,

I believe that the Word of God was clothed with flesh and became a man for the purpose of our Salvation, He was conceived by the Power of the Holy Spirit in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary. I believe that Jesus the Son of Mary is the Son of God.

Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.

I believe that Jesus Christ renounced all His divinity in order to suffer for us, He took upon Himself the punishment due for our sins and died as any ordinary human being.

He descended into hell;
I believe that after Jesus died, He went to the place where all the dead were before His death, He went there to free the captives who had not received their redemption yet.

On the third day He arose again from the dead.

I believe that Jesus overcame death by the power of His resurrection. The three days is a sign to the believers, a confirmation of the holiness of his words. He destroyed death because He was sinless and death is the price for our sins. He died so that we can live eternally through His resurrection.

He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty;

I believe in the faithfulness of Jesus, Who sits at the right hand of God as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, there He prepares a place for our souls and sends the Holy Spirit to give us Hope and Trust in Him.

From thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Second coming of Christ in Glory, I believe that after we die we will be judged and I also believe in the final judgment for everyone.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

I believe in the third person of Holy Trinity who has made us temples of His Glory, I believe that the Holy Spirit is God our advocate, teacher and consoler. He is the Spirit of Love and Peace of the Father and the Son.

The Holy Catholic Church,

I believe that Jesus founded His Church on Peter the rock, and that this Church still stands by the power of His words through apostolic succession today, I believe that we must submit to the teachings of the Magisterium of the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic and Roman Church.

The communion of Saints,

I believe that the Church is the body of Christ, He is the head and we are the members. By the Grace of God we remain in His Spirit and enter in communion with the souls of those who have gone before Him. I believe in the triumphant Church in Heaven made up of all the saints in Christ, I believe in the suffering Church of those who are being purified in Purgatory, and I believe in the militant Church made up of all the baptised who are living their lives for God here on earth.

The forgiveness of sins,

I believe that all sins committed, except those against the Holy Spirit can be forgiven because Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.
I believe in the power for the forgiveness of sins given by Christ to the Apostles and continued by apostolic succession to all Roman Catholic and Orthodox priests, in the Sacrament of Penance where we are reconciled with God.

The resurrection of the body and life everlasting.

I believe in the Words of Christ who said I will raise you up on the last day. I believe in His promises of eternal life.
