The Nicene Creed

1We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty
2maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen.
3We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God,
4 eternally begotten of the Father,
5God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God,
6begotten, not made, one in Being with the Father.
7Through him all things were made.
8For us men and for our salvation
9he came down from heaven
10by the power of the Holy Spirit
11he was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
12For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
13he suffered, died, and was buried.
14On the third day he rose again
15in fulfillment of the Scriptures;
16he ascended into heaven
17and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
18He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
19and his kingdom will have no end.
20We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of Life,
21who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
22With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
23He has spoken through the Prophets.
24We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
25We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
26We look for the resurrection of the dead,
27and the life of the world to come. Amen.
