The Nicene Creed For Children
Transcript of The Nicene Creed For Children
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 with
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 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.
In 319 a serious problem threatened the Church. A Libyan priest, Arius (256-336) began teaching a new doctrine that contradicted orthodox beliefs about what was to become of the Trinity. The Trinity is the relationship between God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit. The trinity is God in three parts. This is why the bishops wear the hats with the three points. Arius announced that “If the Father begat the Son, then he who was begotten had a beginning in existence, and from this it follows there was a time when the Son was not.” In other words, Arius denied Christ’s true divinity: arguing that God created Christ from nothing.
Constantine eventually responded to the Arian crisis by writing to 1800 bishops across the Roman Empire and ordered them to meet at Nicea in 325. It is thought that between 220 and 250 bishops actually attended. Many of them were from the East. Arius had also been invited to attend and in the middle of the explanation of his beliefs he started out a chant. “The Son is not equal to the Father.” was part of this chant.
At the final vote about the views there were 303 people attending. Only 3 people voted for Arius’ view and the rest thought of Arius’ view as heresy. The Nicene Creed that you will read now is stating the Holy Trinity. God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit.
Preface I believe in God the Father who created the world. He made everything that you can see and everything you can’t. I believe that God had a son called Jesus who he sent to teach us many things on Earth. He was God on Earth. God is all powerful and all knowing. Jesus’ mother was Mary. She got a visit from an angel filled with the Holy Spirit and was made pregnant. He came down from heaven. He performed many miracles and made the sick people better. After many years he died on a cross and was buried for our sake but then he came back to life. He went back up to heaven and is seated at God’s right hand. There is always a place for him in heaven and in Earth. I believe that he will come again and that he will never die. I believe in the Holy Spirit, another piece of God. With God and Jesus people love and praise the Holy Spirit and the wisest men even talk about the Holy Spirit. I believe in one church. I say that I have been baptised for forgiveness of my mistakes and I look forward to when Jesus will come back. AMEN By Jessica Azzolini 9 Red
