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,
consubstantial with the Father;
* through him all things were made.
For us men 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 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.
For our Protestant friends, you can find this setting with the BCP/ICET and Enriching our Worship texts, and also a recording of that translation.
