The Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father, Almighty,

maker of heaven and earth and of all that is,

seen and unseen.

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only

begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father

before all worlds, God, from God; Light,

from Light; True God, from True God; begotten

not made, of one substance with the Father.

Through Him all things were made, who for

us men and for our salvation came down from

heaven, was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of

the virgin Mary, and was made man.  For us He

was crucified under Pontius Pilate, He suffered

and was buried.

On the third day He rose again in accordance

with the scriptures; He ascended into heaven

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again with glory to judge

the living and the dead and His kingdom will

have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver

of life, who proceeds from the Father and

the Son. With the Father and the Son together

He is worshipped and glorified. He spoke

through the prophets.

I believe in Christ’s holy universal and

apostolic church. I acknowledge one

baptism for the forgiveness of sins and

I look for the resurrection of the dead,

and the life of the world to come.
