Creeds

Below are copies of the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds

The Apostles' Creed

(In the UMC Hymnal)

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,

  maker of heaven and earth,

 

And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,

  who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, 

  born of the Virgin Mary,

  suffered under Pontius Pilate,

  was crucified, dead, and buried.

 The third day He rose from the dead; 

  He ascended into heaven,

  and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty,

  From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

 

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

  the holy catholic church,

  the communion of saints,

  the forgiveness of sins,

  the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting.

The Apostles' Creed

(Tentatively planned to be adopted by the GMC)

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,

  maker of heaven and earth,

 

And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,

  who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, 

  born of the Virgin Mary,

  suffered under Pontius Pilate,

  was crucified, dead, and buried.

 The third day He rose from the dead; 

  He ascended into heaven,

  and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty,

  From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

 

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

  the holy catholic church,

  the communion of saints,

  the forgiveness of sins,

  the resurrection of the body,

  and the life everlasting.

The Nicene Creed

(4th Century AD)

We believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.

And 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 for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of 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.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father, who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.

We believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. We confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins; we look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
