The Nicene Creed


I believe in one God, The Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth,
and of all things visible and invisible.
And I believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God.
Born of the Father before all ages.
God of God, Light of Light, true God of true God.
Begotten, not made, of one substance with the Father.
By Whom all things were made.
Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven.
And He became flesh by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man.
He was also crucified for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried.
And on the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead.
And of His kingdom there will be no end.
And 1 believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, Who proceeds from the Father.
Who together with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, and Who spoke through the prophets.
And one holy, Catholic, and apostolic Church.
I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
And I await the resurrection of the dead.
And the life of the world to come. Amen.
