The Orthodox Creed

Truly we believe in one God, God the Father, the Pantocrator, creator of heaven and earth, and of all things seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all ages.

Light of Light, true God of true God; begotten, not created; of one essence with the Father by whom all things were made;

Who for us and for our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and of the Virgin Mary, and became man.

And He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, suffered and was buried;

And on the third day He rose from the dead according to the Scriptures.

Ascended into heaven, He sits at the right hand of His Father; and He is coming again in His glory to judge the living and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

Yes, we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life, who proceeds from the Father; who, with the Father and the Son, is worshiped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.

And in one holy, universal, and apostolic Church. We confess one Baptism, for the remission of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the age to come. Amen.
