I BELIEVE in the One only God, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, who created all things by Jesus Christ, and was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself. I believe in God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world; Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son; Who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ; Who hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light; having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the Beloved.

This I verily believe. We thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father, for so it ..seemed good in thy sight.

Father, glorify thy name.

Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy mame ; thy kingdom come ; thy mill be done in earth, as it is in heaven; give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as me forgive them that trespass against us; and lead tis not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: for thine is the Ringdom, and the ponyer, and the glory,for ever and ever. Amen.

I believe in the name of the only begotten Son of God, by whom are all things, and we through him;

I believe that he was made flesh, and dwelt among us; and took on him the form of a servant;

By the overshadowing of the Holy Ghost, was conceived of the Virgin Mary; as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; was born of a woman;

And being found in fashion as a man, was tempted in all points like as we are, yet without sin:


For he is the Lord, the Messenger of the covenant, whom we delight in. The Lord and his Spirit hath sent him to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord: He spoke that which he did know, and testified that which he had seen: as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God. Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world; Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; The third day rose again from the dead, and with him many bodies of the saints which slept; Ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the throne of the Father; whence he will come, in like manner as he was seen going into heaven. T. 58. p. 2. Amen, come, Lord Jesus; come, we implore thee:

With longing hearts we now are waiting for thee; -
Come soon, O come. o

The Lord will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God, to judge both the quick and the dead.

This is my Lord, who redeemed me, a lost and undone human creature, purchased and gained me from sin, from death, and from the power of the devil;

Not with gold or silver, but with his holy, precious blood, and with his innocent suffering and dying;

To the end that I should be his own, and in his kingdom live under him and serve him, in eternal righteousness, innocence, and happiness;

So as he, being risen from the dead, liveth and reigneth, world without end.

This I most certainly believe.

I believe in the Holy Ghost, who proceedeth from the Father, and whom our Lord Jesus Christ sent, after he went away, that he should abide with us for ever;

That he should comfort us, as a mother comforteth her children;

That he should help our infirmities, and make intercession for us, with groanings which cannot be uttered;
