The Nicene Creed

The Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed is our profession of faith, created in 381 AD at the First Council of Constantinople – a council headed by Roman Emperor Theodosius I to find consensus in the church.

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only-Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all time. Light of light, true God of true God. Born, not made, of one Substance with the Father; through Whom all things were made.

Who for us all, and because of our Salvation, came down from heaven and was Incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and was born man.

And was also crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered and was buried, and He rose on the third day, according to the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father, and He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead! His Kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, Who proceeds from the Father, Who is worshipped and glorified together with the Father and Son, Who spoke through the Prophets.

And in one, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church.

I confess one Baptism for the remission of sins.

And I look for the resurrection of the dead.

 And the life of the world to come. Amen.
