The Nicene Creed, established at the First Ecumenical Council in Nicea in 325 AD, is the basic statement of faith of the Orthodox Church, which has preserved and confessed it unchanged since the Fourth Century

I believe in one God, Father Almighty,
Creator 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 ages.
Light of Light, true God of true God,
begotten not created,
of one essence with the Father
through Whom all things were made.
Who for us men and for our salvation
came down from heaven
and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit
and the Virgin Mary and became man.
He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate.
He suffered and was buried.
And He rose on the third day,
according to the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
And He will come again with glory
to judge the living and dead.
His kingdom shall have no end.
And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord,
the Creator of life, Who proceeds from the Father,
Who together with the Father and the Son
is worshipped and glorified,
Who spoke through the prophets.
In one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.
I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
I look for the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the age to come. Amen.

 

                      
Icon of the Holy Trinity - The Hospitality of Abraham Hymn to the
Holy Trinity

“The cherubim sing Your praises, O holy God:
three Lights and one Light,
one Life and three;
God who begets, God the begotten, and the Spirit of life proceeding from the Father.”
