I believe in God the Father Almighty,

And 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, dead, and buried;
  the third day he rose from the dead;
  he ascended into heaven,
      and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
  from thence he shall come to judge the quick 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.
