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 Apostle’s Creed||The Nicene Creed|
|I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord;
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
*or “He descended to hell.” **”universal” This translation is the version in the United Methodist Hymnal (1989).
|We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
We believe in one holy catholic* and apostolic Church.
