In the year 325 AD – after the Romans stopped persecuting Christians – a group of about 300 Bishops and church leaders came together from all over the empire, to write a statement of faith. Every one of these early church leaders had willingly suffered for their faith because they really believed that Jesus was the Saviour that the world needed.
The Nicene Creed was written to explain to the world what true Christians believe, and continue to believe today. While there are differences between the various denominations of Christianity – and sadly, this has sometimes lead to some very unchristian behavior – the truth is, that all Christians agree about the things that matter.
Here is a translation of the words of that famous statement.
I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of the same substance with the Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is 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.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic(universal) and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.
Those of us who say we believe these words, should also remember that Jesus said, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you. By this shall all people know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34,35
