Nicene Creed

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 men,

And for our salvation,

came down from heaven,


And was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary,

Was made man and was crucified 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 on the right hand of the Father,

And He shall come again with glory,

To judge the quick and the dead.


And, I believe in the Holy Ghost,

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 I believe in One Holy,

Catholic and apostolic church;

I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins;


And I look for the resurrection of the dead

And the life of the Age to come


The Minister’s Creed

My calling is sure, my challenge is big, my vision is clear.

My desire is strong, my influence is eternal, my impact is critical.

My values are solid, my faith is tough, my mission is urgent.

My purpose is unmistakable, my direction is forward, my heart is genuine.

My strength is supernatural, my reward is promised, and my Father is God!


I refuse to be dismayed, disengaged, disgruntled, discouraged or distracted.

Neither will I look back, stand back, fall back, go back or sit back.


I do not need applause, flattery, adulation, prestige, stature or veneration.

I have no time for business as usual, mediocre standards, small thinking, ordinary ideas, petty disputes or low vision.


I will not give up, give in, bail out, lie down, turn over, quit or surrender.

I am a minister of Christ; that is what I do.
