The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
and 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,
one in Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation,
he came down from heaven:

by the power of the Holy Spirit
he was born of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.

For our sake he was crucified
under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered died and was buried.

On the third day he rose again
in fulfillment of 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.

Ecumenical Christian statement of faith accepted by the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, and major Protestant churches. Originally written in Greek, it was long thought to have been drafted at the Council of Nicaea (325), but is now believed to have been issued by the Council of Constantinople (381), based on a baptismal creed already in existence.

Ilocano Version:

Mamatiak iti Dios Ama nga Mannakabalin-Amin
A Namarsua iti Langit ken Daga.
Mamatiak met ken Jesucristo
A Bugbugtong nga Anakna ken Apotayo
A timmao iti aramid ti Espiritu Santo
inyanak ni Santa Maria Birhen
Nagtutuok iti panagturay ni Poncio Pilato
Nailansa iti krus, natay ken naitanem
Immulog iti yan dagiti natay
Nagungar iti maikatlo nga aldaw,
Immuli sadi langit
Ket situtugaw iti makannawan
Ti Dios Ama a Manakabalin-Amin.
Aggapunto sadiay nga umay mangukom
Kadagiti sibibiag ken kadagiti natay.
Mamatiak met iti Espiritu Santo.
Patiek met ti Santa Iglesia Katolika
Ti panagririnnanud ti Sasantos
Ti Pannakapakawan dagiti basbaso
ken addanto met panagungar ti bagi
Ken biag nga agnanayon.
Amen.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) is an official exposition of the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. It was first published in Latin and French in 1992 by the authority of Pope John Paul II and translated into many other languages, including English.

CCC is arranged in four principal parts:

* The Profession of Faith (The Apostles’ Creed)
* The Celebration of the Christian Mystery (Sacred Liturgy, especially the sacraments)
* Life in Christ (including the The Ten Commandments in Roman Catholic theology)
* Christian Prayer (including The Lord’s Prayer)
