We Believe

THE NICENE CREED

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty,
the Creator of heaven and earth, of things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, begotten of God the Father,
Only-Begotten, that is of the substance of the Father.

God of God, Light of Light, true God of true God, Begotten and not made.
Himself of the very nature of the Father by whom all things came into being
in heaven and on earth, both visible and invisible.

Who for us men, and for our salvation coming down from heaven, was incarnate,
was made man, was born perfectly of the Holy Virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit.
Thus He assumed flesh, soul and mind and everything that is in man, truly and not in semblance.

He suffered and was crucified and was buried, and on the third day He rose again;
and ascending into the heaven with the same body, sat at the right hand of the Father.
His is to come with the same body and with the glory of the Father, to judge the quick
and the dead, of whose kingdom there is no end.

We believe also in the uncreated and perfect Holy Spirit who spoke through
the Laws and the Prophets and the Gospels; who descended in Jordan,
preached through the Apostles and dwelt among the Saints.

We also believe in only One, Universal, Apostolic and Holy Church;
in one Baptism, in repentance, in the absolution and forgiveness of
sins; we believe in the resurection of the dead, in the everlasting
judgement of souls and bodies, in the kingdom of heaven and in the life everlasting.
