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 and was buried. He descended into hell.
On the 3rd 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.
