The Apostle’s Creed according to Luke-Acts

Christians proclaim their faith by reciting the words of the Apostle’s Creed. The Apostles' Creed is one of the oldest creeds of Christianity, dating in an early form to at least the middle second century.

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and earth. (In Acts 14:15, we read in part: “We also are men, of like nature with you, and bring you good news, that you should turn from these vain things to a living God who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them.”)

And in Jesus Christ, (Luke 2:11) His only Son, our Lord who was conceived by the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:35), born of the Virgin Mary (Luke 1:27), suffered under Pontius Pilate (Luke 23:23-25), was crucified, dead and buried.

See .

The third day (Luke 24:46), He rose from the dead, He ascended into Heaven (Luke 24:51, Acts 1:11) and is seated at the right hand of God (Acts 7:56), the Father Almighty.

From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead (Acts 10:42).

I believe in the Holy Spirit (Acts 13:2), the catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins (Luke 7:48), and the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
