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,
    begotten of the Father before all worlds;
    God of God, Light of Light,
    very God of very God;
    begotten, not made,
    being of one substance with the Father;
    by whom all things were made;
    Who for us and for our salvation
    came down from heaven,
    and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary,
    and was made man;
    and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate;
    He suffered and was buried;
    and the third day He rose again
        according to the Scriptures,
    and ascended into heaven,
    and sits on the right hand of the Father;
    and He shall come again, with glory,
    to judge the quick and the dead;
    whose kingdom shall have no end.

And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life,
    who proceeds from the Father and the Son;
    who with the Father and the Son together
        is worshipped and glorified;
    who spoke by the prophets;
    and we believe one holy catholic* and apostolic Church;
    we acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins;
    and we look for the resurrection of the dead,
    and the life of the world to come. Amen.

*The word catholic refers not to the Roman Catholic Church, but to the universal church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
