A Messianic version of the
We believe in G-d, the Father El Shaddai,
creator of heaven and earth.
We believe in Y’shua haMeshiach, his only Son,
who was conceived by the Ruach haKodesh,
born of the Virgin Miriam,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended into sheol.
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.
We believe in the Ruach haKodesh,
the fullness of the Body of Meshiach,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
