A Prayer of the Venerable Bede
I implore you, good Jesus, that as in your mercy you have given me

to drink in with delight the words of your knowledge,

so of your loving kindness you will also grant me one day to come to you,

the fountain of all wisdom, and to stand for ever before your face.

The Apostles’ Creed

 

The Apostles' Creed is the ancient creed of Baptism; it is used in the Church's daily worship to recall our Baptismal Covenant.

 

I believe in God, the Father almighty, 
creator of heaven and earth.

 

I believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, 
and born of the Virgin Mary. 
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, 
was crucified, died, and was buried. 
He descended to the dead. 
On the third day he rose again. 

He ascended into heaven, 
and is seated at the right hand of the Father. 
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, 
the holy catholic church, 
the communion of saints, 
the forgiveness of sins, 
the resurrection of the body, 
and the life everlasting. Amen. 

 

Nicene Creed

 

The Nicene Creed is the creed of the universal Church and is used at the

Eucharist.

 

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

 

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death 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 in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

 

We 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 he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen
