I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth.

我信上帝, 全能的父, 創造天地的主。

God’s Word in yOur Heart Language

Knowing God and having a personal relationship with Him is crucial. That includes learning His Word in your language. As author Emily Belvery worked in Taiwan, it was pivotal that this foundational statement of faith could be read and spoken in Mandarin. As she studied, she renewed her appreciation and joy for the Apostles’ Creed. For lifelong Christians, and especially those new to the Christian faith, this study will show you those same joys of confessing the basic truths of your faith.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy Christian Church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
