FC: I Believe.. | Nicene Creed story book
1: History of the Nicene Creed- for parents and teachers | The Nicene Creed was put together at the First Ecumenical Council at Nicea in AD 325 to fight Arianism, and it increased in size at the Second Ecumenical Council at Constantinople in AD 381 to balance its coverage of the Trinity by including the Holy Spirit. It is the only creed that was made known by any of the seven ecumenical councils and it is the only creed that is truly embracing and universal. In the Orthodox Church, it is the only creed.The Nicene Creed and the principle of the New Testament were formed together as part of the same operation. At its depths, it is the statement of faith of a community of believers. When you become part of the Christian community, you are among those who share the same belief in God. As a vital statement of our faith, a creed is an opportunity to remind ourselves and reaffirm before God all that we hold to be sacred and true. There are other Creeds in the Church, including the Apostles' Creed and the Creed of Orthodox Faith.
3: Text of the Nicene Creed | I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made,consubstantial with the Father; Through him all things were made. For us men and our salvation, he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day 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. I 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 adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
