Our Beliefs

Here at Jeremiah’s Vow, we hold to the historic Christian faith as it has been preserved in the Apostles Creed and Nicene Creed. They have been included here.

The Apostles Creed is one of the oldest statements of faith in the history of the Christian church, dating to the end of the first century. The Nicene Creed is an expansion of the Apostles Creed. It includes some clarity with regard to the doctrine of the Trinity and the incarnation. I have included them both because they are theologically rich and historically significant.

The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth:

And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord:
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
Born of the Virgin Mary:
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, dead, and buried:
He descended into hell;
The third day he rose from the dead:
He ascended into heaven,
And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty:
From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit:
The holy catholic Church;
The Communion of Saints:
The Forgiveness of sins:
The Resurrection of the body:
And the Life everlasting. Amen.

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 his 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 God the Father:
And he shall come again, with glory, to judge both the quick and the dead;
Whose kingdom shall have no end.

And I 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 together is
worshipped and glorified;
Who spoke by the Prophets.

And I believe in one 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.
