My Creed

  1. My Creed

    I believe In God the Father Almighty,
    Maker of Heaven and Earth,
    I believe In Jesus Christ, His only Son our Lord,
    only Begotten of the Father, Born a Human Birth.

    I believe in the Holy Spirit, The Communion of Saints,
    The Forgiveness of Sins' sentence.
    The Life Everlasting, and The Holy
    Christian Church (that which teaches repentence).

    Indeed, I believe in one God,
    the Father Almighty, Indivisible
    Maker of all Heaven and Earth,
    of all both seen and invisible…

    I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
    the only son of God,
    Begotten eternally: God from God,
    Light from Light, true God from true God

    Of one being with the Father,
    begotten not made
    But through Him
    all things were made…

    He came down from Heaven
    for us and for our salvation,
    By the power of the Holy Spirit,
    through a Virgin, became a human incarnation…

    For my sake he was crucified
    under Pontius Pilate,
    Suffered, died, and was buried
    (tearing the curtain of scarlet-violet) .…

    On the third day He rose again
    as the Scriptures say God had planned.
    He ascended into heaven
    and is seated at the fathers’ right hand…

    He will come again
    (from on high where he once did ascend) .
    To Judge the Living and the Dead
    And his kingdom will have no end.

    I believe in the Holy Spirit,
    the giver of Life – the Lord,
    From the Father and Son proceeding,
    and with them is glorified and adored

    He has spoken through the prophets
    (both warm and vitriolic)
    I believe in one Church,
    Holy, Christian, and apostolic.

    I acknowledge one Baptism
    for the forgiveness of sins (to which we all succumb)
    I look for the resurrection of the dead
    and the life of the world to come.
