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 and 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 is seated at the right hand of the Father;
and he shall come again, with glory,
to judge both the living and 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 worshiped and
who spoke by the prophets.
And I believe one holy catholic, apostolic church.
I acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins;
and I look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.

While the familiar Apostles' Creed is associated with baptism (see 518 and 519), the Nicene Creed is associated particularly with the Lord's Supper and is professed weekly throughout the world by many churches, including Roman Catholic, Episcopal, and Lutheran congregations. See also page 842 for a discussion of this ecumenical creed; the text is found in the Psalter Hymnal (p. 814) with a brief historical footnote (note that the hymn text differs from the modern translation of the creed in a few phrases).
See PHH 518.
