    maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen
    and unseen.

The Nicene Creed
  • 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

  • by the power of the Holy Spirit he was born of
    the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he
    was crucified under Pontius Pilate he suffered,
    died, and was buried. 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 in glory
    to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom
    will have no end.

    giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and
    the Son. With the Father and the Son he is
    worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through
    the Prophets.
  • Spirit life

The Nicene Creed

    Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the

    resurrection of the dead, and the life of the
    world to come.
