Council of 1 CONSTANTINOPLE (AD 381)

“We 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, 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 Ghost and 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 at the Right Hand of the Father.  And he shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead.  Whose kingdom shall have no end.

And [we 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 glorified, who spoke by the prophets.  And [we believe] in one, holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.  We acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins, [and] we look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.  Amen.”
