Nicene Creed

Nicene Creed

If any of you are interested in confessing to God himself that christ is the messiah. Its easy to just say Father God I believe in Jesus Christ. However below is a formal Nicene Creed. So many evangelical faiths teach the sinners prayer. However it almost seems like they want you to confess to them. Like its not just about The God who created everything. Like its about their ministry or because they want something from God for asking someone to say the sinners prayer. We need to fellowhip and commune together but not to miserate each other and try and take credit for what God do. Really a ceremonial confession of the creed is very enlightning and refreshing to the spirit. The sinners prayer is kind of crude and unofficial . You might as well just secretly say to God yourself that you believe in his son Jesus Christ.

We believe in one God the Father, the Almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one being [substance] with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven; by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made truly human. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father [and the Son]. With the Father and the Son he is worshipped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one, holy Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen
