Daniel Whyte III, Who Happens to Be a Baptist Preacher, But For Nearly 30 Years Has Read the Apostles’ Creed In His Family Devotions Takes the Liberty to Change the Apostles’ Creed For First Time In Hundreds of Years


Daniel Whyte III, who happens to be a Baptist preacher, but for nearly thirty years has read the Apostles’ Creed in family devotions with his wife and seven children takes the liberty to change the Apostles’ Creed for the first time in hundreds of years. He recommends that all parents have family devotions each day, which used to be called the family altar; and if they have little children to teach them the Apostles’ Creed.

The changes are in red and underlined below:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
the Maker of heaven and earth;

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;
He descended into hell.
The third day He rose again from the dead;
He was seen alive by Mary Magdalene and the other women, the disciples and over 500 other brethren;
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 church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
