My Statement of Faith
The Nicene Creed
Contrary to what the Roman Catholics try to make us believe, the Nicene Creed was formulated in Nicea which was a City in Greece and was written in Greek (NOT LATIN) as was the New Testament. Rome was but one Church of many attending this conference.
I have had Baptists (I went to a Baptist Bible College) tell me this is heresy.
Yet I can defend every line from the King James Bible that I trust.
Here is is the NICENE CREED:
I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.
[1 Corinthians 8:6, James 2:19, John 1:1-3]
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.
[1 Corinthians 5:4, John 1:14, John 3:16, John 1:1-3]
Who, for us men for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.
[1 Thessalonians 5:9, 1 Timothy 3:16, Matthew 1:23, Mark 15:15, John 21:14, Luke 22:69, 2 Thessalonians 1:7,8]
And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father [and the Son]; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.
[John 15:26, John 16:13, John 14:26]
And I believe one holy catholic (Means universal, not Rome) and apostolic Church.
I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
[Acts 19:4, Acts 22:16, 1 Corinthians 12:13, Mark 1:8, John 11:25, 1 Peter 1:3, Revelation 20:6]
