the following creeds are best described as "basic christianity"

Apostles' Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty,

creator of Heaven and earth;

And in Jesus Christ,

His only Son, our Lord,

Who was conceived by the
Holy Spirit,

born from the virgin Mary,

Suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified,

dead and buried,

descended into hell,

On the third day rose again
from the dead,

Ascended to Heaven,

sits at the right hand of God
the Father almighty,

Thus He will come to judge
the living and the dead;

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

The holy Universal Church,

The fellowship of saints,

The remission of sins,

The resurrection of the Body,

And eternal life.


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:
the one begotten from the Father before all the ages,
light of light, true God of true God,
begotten not made, being of one substance with the Father,
through whom all things came into being,

who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven
and became flesh by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,
and became man and was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered and was buried,
and on the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures
and ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father;

and he shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead,
whose kingdom shall have no end.

And in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord and life-giver,
the one who proceeds from the Father,

who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified,

who spoke through the prophets.

In one holy, Universal, and apostolic church:

we confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins;

we expect the resurrection of the dead

and the life of the age to come.





We, then, following the holy fathers,

all with one consent teach people to confess one and the same Son,

our Lord Jesus Christ,

the same perfect in Godhead and also perfect in manhood;

Truly God and truly man, of a Human soul and body;

Having the same essence [divinity] of the Father according to the Godhead,

and same Substance [body] with us according to the humanity;

Like us in every way except sin;

Begotten before all ages of the Father according to the Godhead,


and in these latter days,

for us and for our salvation,

born of the virgin Mary,

the mother of God, according to the manhood;

One and the same Christ, Son, Lord, Only-begotten,

to be acknowledged in two natures,

without confusion,

without change,

without division,

without separation;

The distinction of natures being by no means taken away by the union, but rather the property of each nature being preserved,

and concurring in one person and one subsistence,

not parted or divided into two persons,

but one and the same Son, and only begotten, God the Word, the Lord Jesus Christ;

As the prophets from the beginning have declared concerning Him,

and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself has taught us,

and the creed* of the holy fathers has handed down to us.
