The Greek Evangelical church accepts fully the Nicene Creed (Nice/Constantinople) which is a summary of the fundamental values of the Christian faith. The Nicene Creed is a Symbol of faith widely used in Christian liturgy.
It is called Nicene because it was originally adopted in the city of Nicaea (present day Iznik, Turkey) by the First Council of Nicaea in 325. In 381, it was amended at the First Council of Constantinople, and the amended form is referred to as the Nicene or the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed.
- We believe that the Bible, the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 of the New Testament, is by revelation, the divinely inspired and inerrant Word of God.
- We believe there is a God who created the world with His word and created man in His image and in His likeness. This God is a triune God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).
- We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ and in His incarnation through the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary. We believe in His sinless life, in His miraculous power, His death on the cross for the salvation of the sinner, His physical resurrection from the dead, His ascension, and His glorious second coming.
- We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whom the sinner is born again; and that the Holy Spirit, through His power and the gifts He gives, enables the sinner to live a godly Christian life, serving and performing the Holy Will of God.
- We believe that man is by nature sinful and separated from God, and that it is impossible to enter the kingdom of God and be saved by one’s own works, but only by faith in the blessed person and redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ. By faith the sinner receives Christ, trusts Him, and rests his salvation only in Him.
- We believe in one holy, catholic and apostolic Church, that is, the innumerable multitude of believers of all nations and of all times, who are united as one body by the Holy Spirit with Christ as their head, having fellowship with the Lord and with each other.
