The Creed

I believe
in one God the Father almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth,
and of all things visible and invisible.
And [I believe] in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
the only-begotten, begotten of the Father before all ages,
Light of Light, true God of true God,
begotten, not made, 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 the Virgin Mary, and became man;
and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate,
and suffered and was buried;
and the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures;
and ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father.
And He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead;
of His kingdom there shall be no end.
And [I believe] in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of life,
Who proceeds from the Father,
Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified,
Who spoke by the prophets.
[I believe] In one, holy catholic and apostolic Church;
I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins;
I look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
