The Nicene Creed

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

We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
    the only begotten Son of God,
    begotten of the Father before all worlds,
    God of God, Light of Light, true God of true God,
    begotten, not made; being of one substance with the Father;
    by whom all things were made.
    For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
    and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
    He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate,
    he suffered and was buried,
    and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.
    He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father.
    He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead
    and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life,
    who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
    who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified,
    who has spoken through the Prophets.
    We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
    We confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
    and we look forward to the resurrection of the dead
    and the life of the world to come.
