One of the 3 ecumenical creeds [including Apostles and St. Athanasius
creed] of the Christian Church. Do all Christians prescribe/profess this creed? If not, why?


The Nicene Creed

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 worshipped 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.


"NOTE:
The Nicene Creed is the most widely accepted and used brief statements of the Christian Faith. In liturgical churches, it is said every Sunday as part of the Liturgy. It is Common Ground to East Orthodox, Roman Catholics, Anglicans, Lutherans, Calvinists, and many other Christian groups. Many groups that do not have a tradition of using it in their services nevertheless are committed to the doctrines it teaches.
(Someone may ask, "What about the Apostles' Creed?" Traditionally, in the West, the Apostles' Creed is used at Baptisms, and the Nicene Creed at the Eucharist [AKA the Mass, the Liturgy, the Lord's Supper, or the Holy Communion.] The East uses only the Nicene Creed.)"

The Nicene Creed

Of God or of Man?

Contains a summary of Catholic Christian beliefs as penned by a man.

Biblical?

Hmmmm.....Sounds like using something created by man.

Beholden to it?

No creed is needed only the Holy Scriptures contained with the books of the Bible.

GreyFalcon,
Do you attend any form of formalized religion/church? If so, which? Also, do you recite a creed of any form? I was brought up in the Methodist Church. We said the Apostles Creed. Just wondering for my own understanding as to where you are coming from.
Thanks,
<>< weather...

i believe. as i was born and raised a catholic. i am non practicing one for years now though. and by non practicing one - i mean i have not gone to church for years now. which is one of the 10 commandments. i would 101% say though that i WILL die a catholic. that said, i am still very confused with the holy trinity concept. but i believe.

Yes I do

But I don't see what that has to do with anything.

No I don't find any creeds in my Bible to no I do not recite any creed.

I just think that knowing what church you attend would help me/us to better understand your views. If I came on the forum condemning others of their views/belief systems but did not give any backing as to why I was so negative to others, you would wonder "where I am coming from". That is my point and unless you are embarrased to tell us what church that you belong to, I do not see why it is a problem.

My "views" as you call them are based on Scripture.

My beliefs are also based on the things contained within the New Testament.

And as far as my "church". I am a member of the Lord's church.
