The Nicene Creed (AD 381)
We believe in one God, Father, Almighty.
He’s the Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.
And we believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ.
He’s the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all ages.
He is Light from Light, true God from true God.
He was begotten, not made.
He is of one essence with the Father.
Through Him all things were made.
For us humans and for our salvation, He came down from heaven.
He was made flesh by the Holy Spirit and by the Virgin Mary, and became human.
He was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate and suffered and was buried.
And on the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again, with glory, to judge both the living and the dead.
And His kingdom will have no end.
And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life.
He proceeds from the Father.
Together with the Father and the Son He is worshiped and glorified.
He spoke through the prophets.
And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We await the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the age to come.
