Divine Service: Creed

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty…

Credo is a Latin word and means “I believe.”  There are three catholic, that is, universal creeds: The Nicene, the Apostolic, and the Athanasian.  Of these, the Nicene  is the oldest.  It is the creed we use in the Divine Service.


And in one Lord Jesus Christ…




And I believe in the Holy Ghost…

When we confess the Creed, we draw together the most important truths of the Scriptures.  We express our faith in the great things which God has done for us and we pledge our loyalty to God.

“The Little Service Book” was written by the Rev. Berthold von Schenk (1895-1974), pastor of Our Saviour—New York, as an explanation of the Common Service for children.
