The Nicene Creed

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

And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
        the only-begotten son of God:
        the one begotten from the Father before all the ages,
        light of light, true God of true God,
        begotten not made, being of one substance with the Father,
        through whom all things came into being,
        who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven
        and became flesh by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,
        and became man and was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;
        he suffered and was buried,
        and on the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures
        and ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father;
        whose kingdom shall have no end.

And in the Holy Spirit,
        the Lord and life-giver,
        the one who proceeds from the Father,
        who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified,
        who spoke through the prophets.

In one holy, catholic, and apostolic church:
        we confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins;
        we expect the resurrection of the dead
        and the life of the age to come. Amen.
