First Council of Nicaea - A.D. 325
I 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 men 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 I believe in the Holy
Ghost, 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 I believe one holy catholic and
apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I
look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.
