The Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.

Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.

And I believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

On the Trinity: The Athanasian Creed

Chalcedonian Creed
We, then, following the holy Fathers, all with one
consent, teach men to confess one and the same Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ, the same perfect in Godhead
and also perfect in manhood; truly God and truly
man, of a reasonable soul and
body; consubstantial with the Father according to the Godhead, and
consubstantial with us according to the Manhood; in
all things like unto us, without sin; begotten before
all ages of the Father according to the Godhead, and
in these latter days, for us and for our salvation, born
of the Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, according to
the Manhood; one and the same Christ, Son, Lord,
only begotten, to be acknowledged in two natures,
unconfusedly, unchangeably, indivisibly,
inseparably; the distinction of natures being by no
means taken away by the union, but rather the
property of each nature being preserved, and
concurring in one Person and one Subsistence, not
parted or divided into two persons, but one and the
same Son, and only begotten, God the Word, the
Lord Jesus Christ; as the prophets from the beginning
have declared concerning Him, and the Lord Jesus
Christ Himself has taught us, and the Creed of the
holy Fathers has handed down to us.
