What We Believe

What we Belief - Christ Church, Warren, Ohio  

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;
by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from
the Virgin Mary, and was made man.
For 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 was 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 and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
He 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.


 

For us, the Nicene Creed is a perfect summary of our beliefs as Christians. We find, though, as this creed provides so many answers about our faith, it stirs even more questions; questions that have been wrestled with and debated on for centuries. This is part of the excitement of a faith journey. Many of us found that when we started our walk, we sought to understand and remove the mystery of God. We wanted a Wiki-pedia of the Almighty. But as we grow spiritually, we began to realize that we could not know all the answers. That the beauty of God lies in His wondrous and mysterious ways in which He works in our lives. Come, start or continue your faith journey with us.
