the nicene creed

 
We believe in one God the Father Almighty, 
Maker of heaven and earth, 
And of all things visible and invisible. 
 
And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, 
Begotten of the Father before all worlds, 
God of God, light of light, very God of very God, 
Begotten, not made, being 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 was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary 
And was made man, and crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; 
He suffered and was buried. 
On the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures; 
And ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father;
And He shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, 
Whose 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,
Who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, 
Who spoke by the prophets. 
 
We believe in one holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. 
And we look for the resurrection of the dead, 
And the life of the world to come. Amen
