On the 12th day of Christmas


Twelve Drummers Drumming – The twelve points of Doctrine in the Apostles’ Creed

1) I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

2) I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.

3) He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.

4) He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell [the grave].

5) On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

6) He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

7) I believe in the Holy Spirit

8) The holy Catholic Church

9) The communion of saints

10) The forgiveness of sins

11) The resurrection of the body

12) and life everlasting.
