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.

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.

The Crosswalk

Awesome, isn’t it? We complain about the cross we bear but don’t realize it is preparing us for the deep hole in the road that God can see and we cannot.

Whatever your cross, whatever your pain,
there will always be sunshine, after the rain….
Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall;
But God’s always ready, to answer your call….
He knows every heartache, sees every tear,
a word from His lips, can calm every fear…
Your sorrows may linger, throughout the night,
But suddenly vanish, by dawn’s early light…
The Savior is waiting, somewhere above,
to give you His grace, and send you His love.

May God fill your day with blessings!

Hesus performed by Alamid


Kung nag-iisa at nalulumbay
Dahil sa hirap mong tinataglay
Kung kailangan mo ng karamay
Tumawag ka at Siya’y naghihintay

Siya ang ‘yong kailangan
Sandigan, kaibigan mo
Siya ang araw mong lagi
At karamay kung sawi
Siya ay si Hesus
Sa bawat sandali

Kung ang buhay mo
Ay walang sigla
Laging takot at laging alala
Tanging kay Hesus maka-aasa
Kaligtasa’y lubos na ligaya

Siya ang dapat tanggapin
At kilanlin sa buhay mo
Siya noon bukas, ngayon
Sa dalangin mo’y tugon
Siya ay si Hesus sa habang panahon

(repeat IV)

Kaya’t ang lagi mong pakatandaan
Siya lang ang may pag-ibig na tunay
Pag-ibig na tunay

(repeat IV except last line)

Siya ay si Hesus
Siya ay si Hesus
Siya ay si Hesus sa habang panahon
