The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

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.

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.

And we 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.

And I believe one holy catholic 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.

I've been rereading and meditating upon the Nicene Creed lately.

The women's book club at our church is reading Faith of Our Fathers: A Study of the Nicene Creed by L. Charles Jackson. I just started reading it yesterday, and I'm really looking forward to discussing it.

Funny you should bring this up. I've been spending a lot of time in the Creed and Confessions over the last few weeks and have found them to be greatly encouraging.

Wish I could sit in on your discussions. Why don't you blog your thoughts as you go? I'd love to read them!
