THE NICEAN CREED

I believe in one God, the Father, Almighty, maker of Heaven and earth, and of all that is, seen and unseen.

 

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds, God, from God; Light, from Light; True God, from True God; begotten not made, of one substance with the Father.  Through Him all things were made, who for us men and for our salvation came down from Heaven, was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man.  For us He was crucified under Pontius Pilate, He suffered, died and was buried.  On the third day He rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again with 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. With the Father and the Son together He is worshipped and glorified. He spoke through the prophets.

 

I believe in Christ’s holy universal and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Do you accept the Nicean Creed?

Do you accept the Bible as the inspired, infallible and inerrant Word of God?

Do you agree with the Reformation principles of Scripture alone is our ultimate authority, Salvation is by Grace alone, received by Faith alone. Christ alone is the Head of the church and everything is to be done to the Glory of God alone?

Do you support the purposes of the Africa Christian Network?

“For the glory of God and in obedience to the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ, Christian Action Network shall seek to encourage co-operation between its members and affiliates to make disciples of the nations; teaching obedience to all things that the Lord has commanded.”
