Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, "Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed."



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; He descended into Hell; The third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven; And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit; The Holy Christian Church, the Communion of Saints; The Forgiveness of sins; The Resurrection of the body; And the life everlasting. Amen.



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, begotten of the Father before all ages, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten not made, being of one substance with the Father, through Whom all things  were made: Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven,  was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man:  Who for us, too, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, suffered, and was  buried: the third day He rose according to the Scriptures, ascended into heaven, and is seated on the right hand of the Father: He shall come  again with glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom shall have no end.

And in the Holy Spirit,  the Lord and Giver of life, Who proceeds from the Father and the Son: Who together with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified: Who spoke by the prophets.

And I believe one holy,  Christian, and apostolic Church.

I acknowledge one  baptism for the remission of sins, and I look for the resurrection of the dead and life of the age to come.




Whoever wishes to be saved must, above all else, hold the true Christian faith.  Whoever does not keep it whole and undefiled will without doubt perish for eternity.

This is the true Christian faith, that we worship one God in three Persons and three  Persons in one God without confusing the Persons or dividing the divine  substance.

For the Father is one  Person, the Son is another, and the Holy Spirit is still another, but  there is one Godhead of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, equal in glory and coequal in majesty.

What the Father is, that is the Son and that is the Holy Spirit: the Father is uncreated, the  Son is uncreated, the Holy Spirit is uncreated; the Father is unlimited, the Son is unlimited, the Holy Spirit is unlimited; the Father is eternal, the Son is eternal, the Holy Spirit is eternal; and yet They  are not three Eternals but one Eternal, just as there are not Three Who  are uncreated and Who are unlimited, but there is One who is uncreated  and unlimited.

Likewise the Father is almighty, the Son is almighty, the Holy Spirit is almighty.

So the Father is God,  the Son is God, the Holy Spirit is God, and yet there are not three Gods but one God.

So the Father is Lord, the Son is Lord, the Holy Spirit is Lord, and yet they are not three  Lords but one Lord.

For just as we are compelled by Christian truth to acknowledge each Person by Himself to be God and Lord, so we are forbidden by the Christian religion to say that there are three Gods or three Lords.

The Father was neither made nor created nor begotten by anybody.

The Son was not made or  created, but was begotten by the Father.

The Holy Spirit was not  made or created or begotten, but proceeds from the Father and the Son.

Accordingly there is one Father and not three Fathers, one Son and not three Sons, one Holy Spirit and not three Holy Spirits.

And among these three  Persons none is before or after another, none is greater or less than  another, but all three Persons are coequal and coeternal, and accordingly, as has been stated above, three Persons are to be worshiped in one Godhead and one God is to be worshiped in three Persons.

Whoever wishes to be saved must think thus about the Trinity.

It is also necessary for eternal salvation that one faithfully believe that our Lord Jesus Christ became man, for this is the right faith, that we believe and  confess that our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is at once God and man:

He is God, begotten  before the ages of the substance of the Father, and He is man, born in  the world of the substance of His mother, perfect God and perfect man,  with reasonable soul and human flesh, equal to the Father with respect  to his Godhead and inferior to the Father with respect to His manhood.

Although he is God and man, He is not two Christs but one Christ: one, that is to say, not by changing the Godhead into flesh, but by taking on the humanity into God, one, indeed, not by confusion of substance but by unity in one Person.

For just as the  reasonable soul and the flesh are one man, so God and man are one Christ, Who suffered for our salvation, descended into hell, rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, is seated on the right hand of the Father, whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

At His coming all men  shall rise with their bodies and give an account of their own deeds.

Those who have done good will enter eternal life, and those who have done evil will go into everlasting fire.

This is the true Christian faith.  Unless a man believe this firmly and faithfully, he  cannot be saved.
