THE PROFESSION OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH

 

The Apostles Creed

             

The Nicene Creed

I believe in God,
the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

 

We believe in one God, 
the Father, the Almighty, 
maker of heaven and earth, 
and of all that is, seen and unseen.

I believe in Jesus Christ, 
his only Son, our Lord.

 

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, 
the only Son of God, 
eternally begotten of the Father, 
God from God, Light from Light, 
true God from true God, 
begotten, not made, 
one in Being with the Father. 
Through him all things were made. 
For us men and for our salvation, 
he came down from heaven:

He was conceived by the 
power of the Holy Spirit 
and born of the Virgin Mary.

 

by the power of the Holy Spirit 
he was born of the Virgin Mary, 
and became man.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate, 
was crucified, died, and was buried. 
He descended into hell.

 

For our sake he was crucified 
under Pontius Pilate; 
he suffered died and was buried.

On the third day he rose again.

 

On the third day he rose again 
in fulfillment of the Scriptures;

He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge 
the living and the dead

 

he ascended into heaven 
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory 
to judge the living and the dead, 
and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, 
the holy catholic Church, 
the communion of saints, 
the forgiveness of sins, 
the resurrection of the body, 
and the life everlasting. 
Amen.

 

We believe in the Holy Spirit, 
the Lord, the giver of life, 
who proceeds from the 
Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son 
he is worshipped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets. 
We believe in one holy 
catholic and apostolic Church. 
We acknowledge one 
baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.
Amen.
