The Third Article
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
What does this mean?
I believe that I cannot by my own reason or strength believe in Jesus Christ, my Lord, or come to Him.
But the Holy Spirit has called me by the Gospel, enlightened me with His gifts, sanctified, and kept me in true faith.
In the same way He calls, gathers, enlightens, and sanctifies the whole Christian Church on earth and keeps it with Jesus Christ in the one true faith.
In this Christian Church He daily and richly forgives all sins to me and all believers.
On the Last Day He will raise me and all the dead and give to me and all believers in Christ eternal life. This is most certainly true.
