The Nicene Creed, also called the Nicaeno-Constantinopolitan Creed, is a statement of the orthodox faith of the early Christian church, in opposition to certain heresies, especially Arianism. These heresies concerned the doctrine of the Trinity and of the person of Christ and were refuted at the Council of Nicea (A.D. 325). Yet it was not this Council but the Council of Constantinople (A.D. 381) which adopted the Nicene Creed. This Council incorporated into its creed various formulations from the decisions of Nicea and expanded the confession concerning the Holy Spirit. The Nicene Creed is typical of the creeds used in the eastern part of the Roman empire. Both the Eastern and the Western church held it in honour, although with one important difference. The Western church included the phrase “and the Son” (known as the Filioque) in the article on the procession of the Holy Spirit, a phrase which to this day is repudiated by the Eastern church.


We believe in one God, the Father almighty,

Maker of heaven and earth,

of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God,

begotten of the Father before all ages;

God of God, Light of Light, true God of true God;

begotten, not made,

of one substance with the Father;

through whom all things were made.

Who, for us men and our salvation, came down from heaven

and became incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary

and was made man.

He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;

he suffered and was buried;

and the third day he arose, according to the Scriptures,

and ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father,

and he will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead;

whose kingdom shall have no end.

And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life,

who proceeds from the Father and the Son;

who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified;

who spoke through the prophets.

And we believe one holy catholic and apostolic church.

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins;

and we look forward to the resurrection of the dead,

and the life of the world to come. Amen.

The Bible teaches that the Lord's Day has been set aside for rest and worship. Therefore we worship in the morning and the afternoon. Our worship services are formal. The Bible teaches that a worship service is not merely the meeting of a number of people with one another but above all the meeting between God and his people. Reverence and respect are fitting as we worship in the presence of God. The sermon takes central place in our worship services. The Bible teaches that faith comes from the Holy Spirit and is strengthened by the preaching of God's Word. The Bible also teaches that the preaching of God's Word is meant to give direction for holy living.
The opening of Scripture is therefore central to the worship services.
