The Apostles’ Creed - “I Believe in Jesus”
The Creed ends its affirmations about Jesus with more important observations about him and his work: “the third day he rose again…ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God…; from thence he shall come to judge….” The resurrection is proof that Jesus’ sacrifice was sufficient satisfaction for God’s judgment against sin. Then he took his place in heaven with the Father and intercedes for us (Romans 8). From that position he will one day return to gather the church to himself and then return for judgment.
