Introduction

"What, then, is necessary for a Christian to believe?" asks the Heidelberg Catechism. "All that is promised us in the gospel, which the articles of our catholic, undoubted Christian faith teach us in summary," is the reply.

Originally used as a baptismal formula in the second century, it reached its present form in the sixth. It gives a concise expression of the fundamentals of historic Christianity.

The Apostles' Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ,
His only-begotten Son, our Lord:
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary,

was crucified, dead, and buried;
He descended into hell;
the third day He rose from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
and sits at the right hand of
God the Father Almighty;
from there He shall come 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.
