What we Believe
The Apostles’ Creed is a summary of what the Church teaches and what Christians believe. This simple statement outlines what we at Bishop Ridley believe and has been passed down to us through the years from the earliest days of the Church. When we say the Creed, we join Christians past and present, and from all over the world and many denominations, in proclaiming our common faith.
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,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
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,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will 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.
