The Nicene Creed


In English:


I believe in One God,


The Father Almighty,

Maker of Heaven and Earth,

And 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 of God,

Light of light,

True God of true God;


Begotten, not made,

Being of one substance with the Father:

By Whom all things were made.


Who for us men

And for our salvation

Came down from Heaven.


And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost

Of the Virgin Mary:

And was made man.


He was crucified also for us:

Suffered under Pontius Pilate,

And was buried.


And the third day He rose again,

According to the Scriptures.


And ascended into Heaven:

He sitteth at the right hand of the Father.


And He shall come again with glory

To judge both the living and the dead:

Of Whose Kingdom there shall be no end.


And in the Holy Ghost,

The Lord and Giver of Life:


Who proceedeth from the Father,

And the Son.


Who together with the Father and the Son

Is adored and glorified.


Who spake by the Prophets.


And in One, Holy, Catholic

And Apostolic Church.


I confess one baptism

For the remission of sins.


And I look for the resurrection of the dead.


And the life of the world to come.



In Latin:


Credo in Unum Deum,


Patrem Omnipoténtem,

Factórem Cæli et Terræ,

Visibilium ómnium, et invisibílium.


Et in Unum Dóminum Jesum Christum,

Fílium Dei Unigénitum.


Et ex Patre natum

Ante ómnia sǽcula.


Deum de Deo,

Lumen de lúmine,

Deum verum de Deo vero.


Génitum, non factum,

Consubstantiálem Patri:

Per Quem ómnia facta sunt.


Qui propter nos hómines

Et propter nostrum salútem

Descéndit de Cælis.


Et incarnátus est de Spíritu Sancto

Ex María Vírgine:

Et homo factus est.


Crucifíxus étiam pro nobis:

Sub Póntio Piláto passus,

Et sepúltus est.


Et resurréxit tértia die,

Secúndum Scriptúras.


Et ascéndit in Cælum:

Sedet ad déxteram Patris.


Et íterum ventúrus est cum glória

Judicáre vivos et mórtuos:

Cujus Regni non erit finis.


Et in Spíritum Sanctum,

Dóminum et Vivificántem:


Qui ex Patre,

Filióque procedit.


Qui cum Patre et Fílio

Simul adorátur et conglorificátur.


Qui locútus est per Prophétas.


Et Unam, Sanctam, Cathólicam

Et Apostólicam Ecclésiam.


Confíteor unum baptísma

In remissiónem peccatórum.


Et exspécto resurrectiónem mortuórum.


Et vitam venture sǽculi.
