 QCI Statement of Faith

The Nicene Creed does a nice job of hitting the essentials of the Christian faith - a mere Christianity of sorts. The Creed is listed below as the QCI statement of faith. If the reader wants more specifics on my own denomination, he/she may consult the Christian & Missionary Alliance doctrinal statement.1

The Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen, and in one Lord, Jesus Christ, only begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all worlds, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten not made, of one being with the Father, through Whom (Him) all things were made.

For us men and for our salvation He came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit He was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate; He suffered death and was buried. On the third day He rose again 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. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son He is worshipped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic2 and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.


1In reference to the C&MA doctrinal statement, I hold much more firmly to the essentials (e.g. the Trinity), and do not necessarily agree to all the non-essentials (e.g. a premillenial return of Christ).

2"catholic" in this sense meaning universal, as in "universal church", or "one Body" of believers.
