What We Believe

We believe in One True God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in the one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God; begotten of the father before all worlds; light of light; very God of very God; begotten not made; being of the same substance with the father; and by whom all things were made. Who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven; and was incarnate of the holy virgin mary, mother of god, by the Holy Ghost; and became man; and was crucified for us In the days of Pontius Pilate; and suffered and died, and was buried; and the third day rose again according to his will; and ascended into heaven, and sat on the right hand of the father: and shall come again in his great glory to judge both living and the dead, whose kingdom shall have no end.

And in one living Holy Spirit, the life giving Lord of all, who proceeds from the Father; and who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified: who spoke by the Prophets and Apostles.

And in the one, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church, and we acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and look for the resurrection of the dead and the new life in the world to come.
