Yet are there not three Gods in all,

in all things we adore. 

Therefore whst man foeuer that 
faluatinn will attainc, 

This Faith touching the Trinity* , , 

of force he mult tetaine, r;.. 

And necdtull to etcrnalHife ; ,> 
it is,that eucry wight 

Ofthe incarnsiingofChrid .. 

our Lord bclceuc aright. . 

For this the true faith is,that we 
bciccue and eke doe know, < 
ThatChrid our Lord.the fonne of God, 
is God and man alio. 

God of the Fathers (ubllance, got 
before the world began i 
And of his mothers fjbitance borne 
in world a very mao. 

Both pcrfeid God and pcrfefl man, 

in one,one lefus Chrid: 1 ^ 

Which doth ofrcalonable foule 
and humane dclh fubfift, 

T ouching his God'head,cquBll with 
his Father God is he : 

Touching his man-hood,lower then 
hisfatberin degree; 

Who though he be botli very God, 
and very man alfo •* 

Yet is he but one Chrid alone, 
and is not perfons two- 
One not by turning of God-head, 
into the flefli of man: 

But by taking man-hood to God, 
this being One began. 

All one not by confounding of 
the fubdanceinto one ■ 

But onely by the vnity, 

. t 

that is of one perfoo. 

For as the rearuoablc fuulc 
and deOi but one man ii. 

So in oneperfon God and roan, 
is but one Chrid likewife. 

Who fuifered for to fiue vs all, 
to hell he did defeend > 

T he third day rofc againc from death, 
(oheauen he did afeend. 

He (its at the right hand of God, 
the almighty father there: 

From thence to iudge the quicke and dead, 
againe he Ihalltetiie. 

Ac whofe returne all men (hall rife 
with bodies new rertor’de ; 

And of their owneworkes they (liallgiue 
account vnto the Lord. 

And they vnto eternall life 

(liall goe that haue done well: 

Who haue done ill, (hall goe into 
eternall fire to dwell. 

This is the Catholike beliefe, 
who doth not faithfully 

Beleeuc the fame, without all doubt, 
he faued cannot be.

hath alfo commanded vs to alFemble our fclues

wil not onely be amongd vs,but alfo be our Me¬

Therefore we bcfcech thee mod mercifull Fa¬

ouspetfons,drunkards,gluttons, and fuch like, 
fhall not inherit the Kingdoine of God. 

And bccaufe thou had commanded vs to piray

I Selecue and confefle my Lord God eternalJ, 
infinite, vnnicafarablejincomprehenfible and 
inuifible, one in fubftanee, and three in perfon, 
Father, Sonne,and holy Ghofl, who by nil Al- 
mfghty power and wifedome, hath not onely of 
riothing created heauen and earth, and all things 
therein contained, & man after his owne image, 
chat hee might in him be glorified, but alfo by 
hit fatherly proufdence gouerneth,maintaiBefh, 
Atl jrrefcfueth the fame according to the pur- 
jiofe of his will. 

I bclteue alfo & confeffe leftn Chrift the one- 
Jy Sauionrand Mellias, who being equall wifli 
God,madehhnfetfe ofnorepination, but tooice 
on him the fliape of a feruant, tnd became man 
iii all things, like vntovs, except finne,toairure 
vS of mercy andforgiueneiTe For when through 
OUf father AJamt tranfgrefEorijWe were become 
Children of perdition, there was no meanei to 
bflngrS from the yoke of finne anddamnation, 
but onely TefuS Chrifl our Lr>rJ, whogiuingtrs 
that by grade, which was hii \>y Nature, nude 
vs through fatth the children ofGod,who when 
ihefiilneire of time Was come, was conceiued by 
the power ol the holy Ghofl, borne of the Vir¬ 
gin Afary (according to the flefh) and preached 
in earth the Gofpel offaluation, till at length by 
Tyranny of the Priefls, hre was gnilclflle con¬ 
demned vnder Ptntim Pi/arr, then Pre/ident of 
lury, and moQ ilanderoufly hanged on the 
Crotle betweene two Tbeeues as a notorious 
trelpafTcr, wliere taking vpon him the puniih- 
OHntof our fins, hedeliucred vs from the curie 
of fhelaw. 

And forafmuch as he being onely God could 
not feele death, neither being onely man, could 
ouercome death,hce ioyned both tc^ether, and 
fuflered his humanity to be punilhed with mofl 
cruell death, feeling in himfelfe the anger and 
feuere ludgemenc of God, euen as he had been 
in extreamc torments of bell, and therefore cri¬ 
ed with a loud voice .• My G»d, Mj GU, why 
hiifltbtii farftkfnmtefThu)o{his mercy with¬ 
out compulfion, hee offered Tp himfelfe as the 
onely facriScc to purge the flnnes of all the 
World, fo that all other facrifices for finne are 
blarphcroous,and derogate from the fufiiciency 

Which death albeit it did iliflicicntly recon¬ 
cile vs CO God,ye( the Saipturcs commonly doe 
atciibute our regeneration to his refurredion. 
For ss by riling agaiiie from the graue thethird 

day.he conquered death, euen fothcsl^lory of 
cur faith (landeih m hit refutr’ei'litin. and there¬ 
fore without the one wee C onor feele the bene¬ 
fits o( theother. For as by his d^ai.h finne was 
taken away, fu our tighief>ofrieir; was rcflored 
by hit refurredion. And becaufe hee would ac- 
complifli all things, and takepcircfTion for viin 
hiskingdome, hee afeended into heauen toeo. 
large the fame kingdome by the abundant pow¬ 
er ^ hit (pint, by whom we are moil allured of 
his continual! interceffion towards God the Fa¬ 
ther for vs. And although hee bee in t.caocn at 
touching his corporal] prcfimcc, where the Fa¬ 
ther hath now frt him at hit right hind,commit- 
ting vnro him the adminiilradon of all things, 
as wcilin heauen aboue, aiio the earth beneath, 
yetiihecprefcntwithvihit members, euen to 
the end ofthe world, in preferuing and gouer- 
ning vs with his effc^all power and grace,who 
when all things are fulfilled which Cod hath 
i{x>kcnby the mouth of all his Prophets fince 
the wrorld began, will come in the f^e vifiblc 
forme in the which hee afeended, with an rn« 
fpeakeable roaiefly, power, and company tofo- 
perate the Lambs from the Goats, the cleft from 
the rcprobitc. So that none whether he be alitx 
then,or dead beforc,(liall cfcape hit Usdgemenc. 

Moreoutr, I bclccue and confciTc the holy 
Ghofi.God equall with the father and the foatK, 
who rcgencratcthandfanfttfiethvs. nileth and 
guid.'th vs vnto all truth, perfwading mofl af- 
furediy in our confcicoces, that we be the chil- 
dten of God, Brethren to lefui Chrifl, and fd- 
low hcires with him of life eucriafling: yet not- 
witbflanding it is nor lofficient to beiome that 
God is omniporeni and mcrcifull, mat Chnfl 
hath made fatislaftion, orihar the holy Choi! 
hath hii power and eff.ft. cxtepi wee doe ap¬ 
ply the fame bcaefits to vs which ara Oods elc^ 

I beleeue therefore fit confelle one holy chnrchi 
which as members of lefus Chrifl the onely 
head cheicof content in faith, hope and charity, 
rfing the gifts of God, whether they be tempo¬ 
ral! orfpirituiU to cbe profit and funheranceof 
the fame, which Church is not (eene to maos 
eye,but onely knowne to G, d, who of the lofl 
fonnesof c^<^awi,iuth urdaiBcdfoine as vcilels 
of wrath to damnation, and hath chofim others 
as velTels of his mercy to bee fauedLThe which 
in due time hee calleth to integneie of life, and 
godly conuerfation, to make them a gloriout 
Church in himfelfe. But that Church which is 
rifibleand feene to the eye, hath three tokens 
and markes whereby it may be knowne. 

Firflthe word of God contaioed in tht old &
