Chalcedonian Creed


Therefore, following the holy Fathers we all, with one accord
teach men to acknowledge one and the same Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
at once complete in Godhead and complete in manhood,
truly God and truly man, consisting also of a reasonable soul and body;
of one essence with us as regards His manhood;
like us in all respects, apart from sin;
as regards His Godhead, begotten of the Father before the ages,
for us men and for our salvation, of Mary the virgin, the God-bearer;
one and the same Christ, Son, Lord, Only-begotten,
recognized in two natures, without confusion, without change,
without division, without separation;
the distinction of natures being in no way annulled by the union,
but rather the characteristics of each nature being preserved
and coming together to form one person and subsistence,
not as parted or separated into two persons,
but one and the same Son and Only-begotten God the Word, Lord Jesus Christ;
even as the prophets from earliest times spoke of Him,
and our Lord Jesus Christ Himself taught us,
and the creed of the Fathers had handed down to us.
