Order of Christian Knights

In an effort to remain true to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but plagued by the sinfulness of mankind, the Church has suffered countless schisms. Some of these divisions have been necessary for the preservation of the faithful remnant, others have been needless and petty. The Order of Christian Knights is committed to unity within the Body of Christ, and holds the Bible as the standard by which all human understanding must be judged. The Nicene Creed represents a fundamental attempt at codifying the most important tenets of the faith.

The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made 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. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic 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. Amen.
