Thank you for caring enough to find out what we believe.  We use the Nicene Creed because we did not want to try to reinvent the wheel.  All of the basic beliefs of the orthodox Christian faith is included in this creed and reflects what we believe. 


We would like to point out one item.  When this creed speaks of the "one catholic and apostolic church" it is not referring to the Roman Catholic church.  Catholic is another word for universal meaning the body of Christ.

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 His 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 and for our salvation came down from heaven, And was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary, and was made man, and 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 sitteth on the right hand of the Father;  And He shall come again with glory to judge both the quick And the dead; Whose kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified; who spoke by prophets.  And I believe in one 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.
