What We Believe

We believe in one God, the Father
almighty, creator of all that is seen and
unseen, and in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the
only Son of God, the firstborn of all creation,
eternally begotten of the Father but was not
made. True God from true God, one in being
with his Father. Through him all things were
ordered and made. For us and for our
salvation, he came down from heaven. By the
power of the Holy Spirit, he took flesh and
became man. He was conceived and was born
from the Virgin Mary.

He suffered and was crucified under
Pontius Pilate. He died and was buried, and
rose on the third day in fulfillment of the
scriptures. He ascended into heaven and sat
at the right hand of his Father. He will come
again to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in one Holy Spirit, the Spirit of
truth, who proceeds from the Father and the
Son as a life-giving Spirit. We believe in one,
holy, Catholic, and apostolic Church. We
confess one baptism for the forgiveness of
sins, the resurrection of our bodies, and life
everlasting. Amen.
