Nicene Creed

The Statement of Faith of Touchstone Ministries is 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.
Or 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 proceeded from the Father (and the Son),
Who in unity with the Father and the Son
Is worshipped and glorified,
And 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.
