Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father,
the Almighty, maker of heaven and
earth of all that is seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God, eternally begotten
of the Father, God from God, Light
from Light, true God from true God,
begotten, not made, one in Being
with the Father. Through him all things
were made. For us men and our
salvation he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit he was
born of the Virgin Mary, and became
man. For our sake he was crucified
under Pontius Pilate; he suffered, died,
and was buried. On the third day he
rose again in fulfillment of the
Scriptures; he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the
Father. He will come again to judge
the living and the dead, and his
kingdom will have no end. We
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 he is worshipped
and glorified. He has spoken through
the Prophets. We believe in one holy
catholic and apostolic Church. We
acknowledge one baptism for the
forgiveness of sins. We look for the
resurrection of the dead, and the life
of the world to come.

            Amen.
