What do Orthodox Christians believe?
The Creed- Our Statement of Faith

 As Orthodox Christians have been saying for over fifteen centuries...
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 Son of God,
the Only-begotten,
Begotten of the Father before all ages,
Light of Light,
True God of True God,
Begotten, not made;
of one essence with the Father,
by Whom all things were made:
Who for us men and for our salvation
He came down from Heaven,
and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit
and the Virgin Mary,
and became man;
and was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate
and suffered and was buried;
And the third day He rose again
according to the Scriptures;
And ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father;
He shall come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
Whose kingdom will have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life,
Who proceeds from the Father,
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 forgiveness of sins.
I look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.
Amen.
