I believe in one God: Father Pantokrator,
Creator of heaven and earth, and of all that is – visible and invisible.
And in one Lord: Jesus Christ, the Only-begotten Son of God,
begotten of the Father before all the ages.
Light from Light. True God from True God. Begotten, not created,
of one Essence with the Father.
Through Him, all that is, came into existence.
Who, for the sake of us mortals and our salvation,
came down from the heavens and was incarnate1 of the Holy Spirit,
and the Virgin Mariam, and became a Human Being2.
He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate3, and suffered and was buried;
and He arose on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures,
and He ascended into the heavens,
and is seated at the Right Hand of the Father.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead,
and of His Kingdom there will be no end.
And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father,
and with the Father and the Son, is equally worshipped and glorified,
and spoke through the prophets.
And in One Holy, Catholic4, and Apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
I wait expectantly for the resurrection of the dead;
and the life of the age to come.
