Christ Lutheran Church

This We Believe


The Nicene Creed
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 of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,
    and became fully 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 shall 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, and giver of Life,
    who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
    who in unity with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified,
    who has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy Christian and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the body
    and the life of the world to come. Amen.
