Our Creed (Nicene Creed)

Truly we believe in One God, God the Father, the Pantocrator, Who Created Heaven and earth, and of all things seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the Only-Begotten Son of God, Begotten of the Father before all ages.

Light of Light; True God of True God; begotten, not created; of One Essence with the Father, by Whom all things were made. Who for us men and for our salvation came down from Heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and of the Virgin Mary, and became man. He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate. Suffered and was buried.

He rose from the dead on the third day, according to the Scriptures. Ascended to the heavens, He sits at the right hand of His Father and He is coming again in His glory to judge the living and the dead; Whose Kingdom shall have no end.

Yes we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord the Life-Giver, Who proceeds from the Father; Who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified, Who spoke by the prophets. And in one Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. We confess one baptism for the remission of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen
