from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial
one in Being 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
he was born of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered, died, and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in fulfilment of the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right
hand of the Father.
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 worshipped 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.
