creed iconI mostly posted this for the benefit of my friend Wes. It is basically my list of scriptural references I found that support the Nicene creed in certain ways. Send me a message if you need help clarifying some of the references!

The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, (Deut 6: 4, Ephesians 4:5-6; Romans 10: 8-10; 1 John 4: 15)

the Father, the Almighty, (Exodus 6: 3; 1 Cor 8:6; Matthew 6: 9)

maker of heaven and earth, (Genesis 1: 1)

of all that is, seen and unseen. (Colossians 1: 15-16)
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, (Acts 11: 17, 1 Cor 8:6; Eph 4:4)

the only Son of God, (Matt 14: 33; 16: 16; Lk 1:26-35; Mk 1:1; Jn 1:34, 49; 3:16-18, 10:36, 11:4, 20:31)

eternally begotten of the Father, (John 1:1- 2, 1 Jn 4:9; Heb 1, Col 1: 15; 2 Co 4:4; Jn 1:18; Heb 7:3 Mic 5:2)

God from God, (Jn 13:3; 16:27-28)

Light from Light, (Ps 27:1 Jn 8:12; Jn 1:4-9)

true God from true God, (Jn 17:1-5; 1 Jn 5:20) (The Father and the Son both called the True God)

begotten, not made, (Col1:16-18)

of one Being with the Father. (Jn 10:30; Jn 8:58 Jn 14:6-10; Heb 1:1-3; Deut 6:4; Jn 5:17-18)

Through him all things were made. (Jn 1:1-11; Col 1:15-19; Heb 1:1-5)

For us and for our salvation (1 Tim 2:4-6; 2 Cor 5:17-21 Jn 3:17)

he came down from heaven: (Jn 6:32-40; 3:13, 31; 8:23)

by the power of the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:30-35; Matt 1:18-21)

he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, (Gen 3:15; Gal 4:4-5, Is 7:14-16; 1 Jn 4:2-3; 2 Jn 1:7)

and was made man. (John 1:14; Rom 1:3-4; Phil 2:5-8; Heb 10:5; 1 Tim 3:16; John 19:5)

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; (Mark 15: 25; I Cor 15: 3; Matt 27; mark 15; Luke 23; Jn 18-19)

he suffered death and was buried. (Matt 27, Mk 15; Luke 23; Jn 19)

On the third day he rose again (Matt 28; Mk 16; Lk 24; Jn 21; 1 Cor 15)

in accordance with the Scriptures; (Ps 2:7 Ps 16:8-11; 1 Corinthians 15:3)

he ascended into heaven (Lk 24:51; Mk 16:19; Acts 1:9; Ps 110:1, Dan 7:13-14; Acts 7:55-56)

and is seated at the right hand of the Father. (Ps 45:6-7; 1Co 15:25; Mat 26:64; Mar 16:19; Act 2:34; Eph 1:20-22; Heb 1:3, Heb 1:13, Heb 10:12-13; Heb 12:2; 1Pe 3:22)

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, (Act 1:11; Matt 25:31-46, Rev 20:11; 1 Th 4:16-18; 2 Th 1:7- 2:1; Acts 10:42; Jn 5:19-30)

and his kingdom will have no end. (2 Pet 1:11; Is 9:6-7; Dan 7:14; Lk 1:32-33; Heb 1:8)

We believe in one Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, (Eph 4:4; Acts 5:3-5; Gen 1:1-2; Jn 3: 3-5; Rom 8:2,10-11; 1 Cor 12)

who proceeds from the Father. (Jn 14:26; Jn 20:22; Lk 24:49; Acts 1:4; Jn 15:26)

Who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified. (Matt 3:16-17; Rom 8:15; Eph 5:18-19)

He has spoken through the Prophets. (Joel 2:28; Acts 2:17; 2 Tim 3:16 1Sam10:10; Ezk 11:5; Is 61:1)

We believe in one (Eph 4:3-6) holy, (Eph 5:27) catholic (Jude 3; Mk 16:15; Matt 28:18-19), and apostolic Church. (Eph 2:18-22; Acts 2:42; Matt 16:16-19; Jn 20:21-23)

We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. (Eph 4:5; Acts 2:38-39,41-42; 8:36-40; Rom 6:3-5; Gal 3:25-29 1 Pet 3:21; Col 2:10-15; Titus 3:4-5; John 3:1-15; Matt 28:19-20; 1 Cor. 1:16; Heb 10:22)

We look for the resurrection of the dead, (1 Cor 15; Col 1:18; Jn 6:44;11:24; Rom 8:18-23; Phil 3:21)

and the life of the world to come. Amen. (Jn 11:24-27; 2 Cor 5:8; Mk. 10:29-30; Rom. 8:17-25 )
