The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty (Deuteronomy 6:4), maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen (Psalm 146:6).

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God (1 Corinthians 8:6; John 3:16), eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made (John 1:1-4), of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made (Colossians 1:15-16). For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven (Acts 4:12); by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man (Luke 1:35). For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried (Philippians 2:8). On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:4); He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father (Hebrews 12:2). He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead (Matthew 25:31-32), and his kingdom will have no end (Luke 1:33).

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life (Romans 8:11), who proceeds from the Father and the Son (John 16:7). With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified (2 Corinthians 3:18). He has spoken through the prophets (2 Peter 1:20-21). We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church (1 Timothy 3:15). We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins (Ephesians 4:5). We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come (1 Peter 1:3ff, Revelation 22:21).
