What we believe

Each Sunday during the Eucharist we say together the Nicene Creed, which gives a definitive statement of the Christian faith and in the light of these statements of faith we live our lives according to the teachings of the New Testament, especially the Gospels:

 

We believe in one God,

the Father, the almighty,

maker of heaven and earth,

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 with the Father;

through him all things were made. 

For us and for our salvation

he came down from heaven,

was incarnate from the Holy Spirit

and the Virgin Mary

and was made man.

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,

who with the Father and the Son

is worshipped and glorified,

who has spoken through the prophets. 

We believe in one holy catholic

and apostolic 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.
