Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of Heaven and Earth, of all things visible

and invisible.

We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, begotten from the Father before all

ages, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made; of the

same essence as the Father. Through him all things were made. For us, and for our salvation,

he came down from Heaven; He became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary

and was made human. He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was

We believe in One Church, established by God to operate with gifts of the Father, gifts of the

Son, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which are available, relevant and active today.

We affirm one baptism in Christ for the forgiveness of sins.

We look forward to the resurrection of the dead, and to life in the world to come.
