The Nicene Creed










I believe


In one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible:


I believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God of God, Light of Light, true God of true God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.


For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary, and was made man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate. He suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again according to the scriptures; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge both the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.


I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, who proceeds from the Father [and the Son], who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, who spoke through the prophets.


I believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.


Amen.
