The Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed of 325 and 381 AD




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

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial [meaning: of the same essence] with the Father; Through him all things were made.

For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,and became man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with 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.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,who has spoken through the prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic,[meaning: universal] and apostolic Church.
I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.

Amen.

"...Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.

22

(But) even now I know that whatever you ask of God, God will give you."

23

Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise."

24

Martha said to him, "I know he will rise, in the resurrection on the last day."

25

Jesus told her, "I am the resurrection and the life; whoever BELIEVES in me, even if he dies, will live,

26

and everyone who lives and BELIEVES in me will never die. DO YOU BELIVE THIS?"

6 She said to him, "YES LORD, I HAVE COME TO BELIEVE that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one who is coming into the world."..." John 11

My english is poor: I can´t translate this: "...Que tu Credo sea para ti como un espejo. Mírate en el, para ver, si crees realmente todo lo que dices creer. Y alégrate cada día por tu fe..." San Agustín, obispo de Hipona.
