Reading: The Christian’s creed
Reference: 1 Cor. 15:1-19

I Corinthians 15:1: Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
I Corinthians 15:2: By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
I Corinthians 15:3: For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
I Corinthians 15:4: And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
I Corinthians 15:5: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
I Corinthians 15:6: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
I Corinthians 15:7: After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.
I Corinthians 15:8: And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.
I Corinthians 15:9: For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
I Corinthians 15:10: But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
I Corinthians 15:11: Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.
I Corinthians 15:12: Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
I Corinthians 15:13: But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
I Corinthians 15:14: And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
I Corinthians 15:15: Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
I Corinthians 15:16: For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
I Corinthians 15:17: And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
I Corinthians 15:18: Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
I Corinthians 15:19: If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
